Big Data Debate: HBase or Cassandra

This debate about the pros and cons of HBase and Cassandra set up by Doug Henschen for InformationWeek and featuring Jonathan Ellis (Cassandra, DataStax) and Michael Hausenbias (MapR) will stir some strong feelings:

Michael Hausenbias: An interesting proof point for the superiority of HBase is the fact that Facebook, the creator of Cassandra, replaced Cassandra with HBase for their internal use.

Jonathan Ellis: The technical shortcomings driving HBase’s lackluster adoption fall into two major categories: engineering problems that can be addressed given enough time and manpower, and architectural flaws that are inherent to the design and cannot be fixed.

✚ One question I couldn’t answer about this dialog is why HBase-side wasn’t covered by either a HBase community member or a user. Indeed MapR has interest in HBase, but their product is not HBase.
