Cassandra 1.1 Released: What’s New

There are a lot of interesting new features and improvements in the newly released Cassandra 1.1 version to cover them all here, but here’s the gist of them:

  1. Schema improvements
    1. Support for compound keys
    2. Concurrent schema changes
  2. A new version of Cassandra Query Language (CQL3) supporting compound keys and wide rows
  3. Better and easier tuning of the key and row caches
  4. Support for per-table hybrid storage —mixing SSDs and spinning disks

This DataStax’s blog entry provides links to more details about all these features and the others I haven’t enumerated above.
