This article has been created by Vijay Parthasarathy, the author of Learning Cassandra for Administrators. The Apache Cassandra database is a linearly scalable and highly available distributed data store which doesn't compromise on performance and runs on commodity hardware. Cassandra's support for replicating across multiple datacenters / multiple discrete environments is the best in the industry. Cassandra provides high throughput with low latency without any single point of failure on commodity hardware.
Cassandra was inspired by the two papers published by Google (BigTable) in 2006 and Amazon (Dynamo) in 2007, after which Cassandra added more features. Cassandra is different from most of the NoSQL solutions in a lot of ways: the core assumption of most of the distributed NoSQL solutions is that Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) of the whole system becomes negligible when the failures of individual nodes are independent, thus resulting in a highly reliable system.
