Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Cassandra Wiki" for change notification.

The "FrontPage" page has been changed by JonathanEllis:
https://wiki.apache.org/cassandra/FrontPage?action=diff&rev1=113&rev2=114

Comment:
remove outdated stuff in favor of linking docs and docs source

  = Cassandra Wiki =

  {{{#!wiki red/solid

with your wiki username and we will be happy to add you. Contributions welcome!

  Cassandra is a highly scalable, eventually consistent, distributed, structured key-value
store. Cassandra brings together the distributed systems technologies from [[http://s3.amazonaws.com/AllThingsDistributed/sosp/amazon-dynamo-sosp2007.pdf|Dynamo]]
and the data model from Google's [[http://research.google.com/archive/bigtable-osdi06.pdf|BigTable]].
Like Dynamo, Cassandra is [[http://www.allthingsdistributed.com/2008/12/eventually_consistent.html|eventually
consistent]]. Like BigTable, Cassandra provides a ColumnFamily-based data model richer than
typical key/value systems.
  
- Cassandra was open sourced by Facebook in 2008, where it was designed by Avinash Lakshman
(one of the authors of Amazon's Dynamo) and Prashant Malik ( Facebook Engineer ). In a lot
of ways you can think of Cassandra as Dynamo 2.0 or a marriage of Dynamo and BigTable. Cassandra
is in production use at Facebook but is still under heavy development.
+ Cassandra is moving away from this wiki for user-facing documentation in favor of in-tree
docs, linked below.  ([[https://github.com/apache/cassandra/tree/trunk/doc|Pull requests welcome]]!)
+ 
+ Developer-focused information is still hosted on the wiki; see below.
