What is Apache Cassandra?
Apache CassandraTM is a massively scalable open source NoSQL database.

Cassandra delivers continuous availability, linear scalability, and operational simplicity across many commodity servers with no single point of failure, along with a powerful dynamic data model designed for maximum flexibility and fast response times.
