Rob Vaterlaus has started working on a Cassandra backend and Alberto Paro is working on an ElasticSearch backend for Django-nonrel.
The Cassandra backend is still experimental and lacks support for ListField (from djangotoolbox.fields), but overall it already looks very very interesting. This backend comes with experimental secondary indexes support for Cassandra and requires a recent Cassandra 0.7 build.
This blog is called myNoSQL and it is written by me, Alex Popescu, a software architect with a passion for open source and communities.
It records my readings, learnings, and opinions on NoSQL databases, polyglot persistence, and distributed systems -- subjects that I'm passionate about.
The opinions expressed here are my own, and no other party necessarily agrees with them.
If you feel I'm biased, I probably am.
