Subject Re: The Difference Between Cassandra and HBase
Date Sun, 25 Apr 2010 10:40:30 GMT
For me an important difference is that Cassandra is operationally much more
straightforward - there is only one type of node, and it is fully redundant
(depending what consistency level you're using).

This seems to be an advantage in Cassandra vs most other distributed storage
systems, which almost all seem to require some "master" nodes which have
different operational requirements (e.g. cannot fail, need to be failed over
manually or have another HA solution installed for them)
