I'm not sure about the first statement. What do you mean at the second 
part of the sentence?
They are Java-based, but has different API (and I find DS and Astyanax 
API quite more convenient that the Hector's one). They are also can be 
fine-grained configured.
Astyanax performance is about the same to DS (astx now about 5-10% 
faster), what I cannot say about Hector. And the main difference is that 
the DS supports C* v2 with cql3, prepared statements,
its navite  binary protocol and other features. For example, using 
Astyanax versus DS on C* v2 shows unstable results under the high-load.
Also, CQL is now deprecated and in the future the move is towards CQL3 
and thus the DataStax driver recommended for future development. 
Astyanax working on the facade API so, I guess, it will be
possible to change the raw level driver in some cases.
