Hi Yogesh,
As others have said Hadoop vs Cassandra is not a fair comparison. Although, HBase vs Cassandra
is a fair comparison. You can have a look at this comparison: http://bigdatanoob.blogspot.com/2012/11/hbase-vs-cassandra.html

As Harsh commented, HDFS doesn't have a single point of failure any more.

Hadoop and Cassandara are not really competitors.  You can run Hadoop

on top of Cassandra if you want.

It's possible to compare Cassandra and HBase, and some people have

done so.  In general, I've been told that Cassandra is a better match

for situations where you write more than you read, and you don't care

about data consistency.  But that might be a better question for the

HBase and/or Cassandra mailing lists.
