I am not that familiar with gizzard but with gizzard + mysql , you have
multiple moving parts in the system that need to managed separately. You'll
need the mysql expert for mysql and the gizzard expert to manage the
distributed part. It can be argued that long term this will have higher
adminstration cost

Cassandra's value add is its simple peer to peer architecture that is easy
to manage - a single database solution that is distributed, scalable,
highly available etc. In other words, once you gain expertise cassandra,
you get everything in one package.
