Apache Cassandra is A highly scalable, consistent, fault-tolerant, distributed, structured key-value store NoSQL database system, developed by Facebook and maintained by the Apache Foundation .
Apache Cassandra was initially built by Facebook for their own servers and services, using principles developed by Google and Amazon for BigTable and DynamoDB.Currently the project was donated to the Apache Foundation who continues to developed it further.Cassandra is extremely fast, even when dealing with millions of records and operations, a feature that was absolutely crucial to sustaining Facebook’s userbase and real-time interaction capabilities.Getting started with Cassandra should be pretty easy thanks to the very well organized documentation and the plethora of online tutorials.The database is currently used in many Internet companies like Rackspace, Spotify, Netflix, RockMelt, Embedly, Ericcson, Expedia, FormSpring, Adobe, Twitter, Cisco, Digg, Mollom, Digital River, Page2RSS, Real, Reddit, eBuddy, EngineYard, Symantec, Soundcloud, Accenture, Rhapsody, Gowalla, HP, IBM, Mahalo, Walmart, OpenX and others.
