Subject Re: [Cassandra] Initial Setup - VMs for Research
Date Thu, 26 Sep 2013 04:28:53 GMT
There is also Debian for the standard Apache Cassandra build

Or you can use DS Community which is a totally free distro of Apache Cassandra
(Instructions for DS Community will work for both)

Data Stax Enterprise is free for development purposes but can not be used in production without
a licence. In addition is ships with extra installation companents (hadoop, mahoout, solr)
that you probably want need. 

Hope that helps.
