Subject Re: What % of cassandra developers are employed by Datastax?
Date Fri, 16 May 2014 23:44:49 GMT
I used cassandra for years at NYSE and we were able to do what we wanted with cassandra by
leveraging open source and internal development knowing that cassandra did what we wanted
it to do and that no one could ever take the code away from us in a worst case scenario.

Compare and contrast that with the pure proprietary model, and I'm sure it will help you sleep
