cassandra is not suitable for this kind of programs. CouchDB is slightly 
better, it has transactions but no locking and i am not sure if 
transaction isolation is supported now. mongodb has some kind of atomic 
operations -  but 
no locking or rollbacks either.

Standard RDBMS like DB2 and Oracle are best for your kind of 
applications, they can scale well too. In DB2 you can choose between 
shared disk and shared nothing cluster architecture.
