Accumulo, HBase, Cassandra and Some Unanswered Questions

Cade Metz for Wired:

The bill bars the DoD from using the database unless the department can show that the software is sufficiently different from other databases that mimic BigTable. But at the same time, the bill orders the director of the NSA to work with outside organizations to merge the Accumulo security tools with alternative databases, specifically naming HBase and Cassandra.

Is this good for HBase and Cassandra? Is this good for encouraging innovation? Is this good for supporting businesses? Just a few questions I couldn’t answer myself after reading this article about the investigation initiated by the Senate into NSA’s open sourced Accumulo.
