Jonathan Ellis has posted a review of Cassandra’s 2010:
Cassandra hit its stride in 2010, starting with graduation from the ASF incubator in April. 2010 saw 1025 tickets resolved, nearly twice as many compared to 2009 (565).
- two major releases (with multiple point releases) focused on Cassandra stability and performance
- work on the third major release 0.7 planned for release this year focusing on important features like column indexes, live schema updates, distributed counters
- a lot of integrations available for Cassandra: Hadoop, Pig, Hive
- a couple of production deployments. Probably the most notable I’m aware of: Reddit, Digg, US government app, SimpleGeo
- Riptano, the company started to offer support for Cassandra
But more important than all these are the collaboration started between Digg ,Twitter, and the Cassandra community for improving Cassandra and the tons of contributions they’ve made to the project.
