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.
