Cassandra - A Decentralized Structured Storage System

Cassandra is a distributed storage system that can spread over thousands of nodes and store terabytes of structured data. Cassandra was developed at Facebook to solve performance issues during searches in Facebook Inbox. Cassandra can provide a highly available service without a single point of failure. Cassandra borrows some of its architecture choices from Google’s BigTable1 1: Bigtable: A Distributed Storage System for Structured Data and Amazon’s Dynamo2 2: Dynamo: Amazon’s Highly Available Key-value Store.
