Subject [VOTE] Replace HBase with Cassandra
Date Thu, 01 Apr 2010 15:05:39 GMT

I propose a vote to replace HBase as a Hadoop sub-project with Cassandra.

Why members should vote for this proposal:

* Twitter is using Cassandra
* Cassandra sounds like someone you'd trust your kids with, "HBase" sounds like a pathogen.
* You'll never have to kill -9 a namenode
* The Cassandra logo looks better on tshirts
* Hadoop has two sub-projects beginning with "H" and none with "C"
* Twitter is using Cassandra

The vote will remain open for 72 hours.
