The evolution of Cassandra

Robbie Strickland (Weather Channel’s software development manager):

“It used to be that Cassandra was something of a beast,” recalled Robbie Strickland, the Weather Channel’s software development manager. “It was like an old space shuttle cockpit with a million knobs.” In fact, prior to joining the Weather Channel, Strickland says using Cassandra required spending “most of the day in the Cassandra IRC channel talking to developers.”

Some databases evolve into more powerful and friendlier tools, while others are just “familiar giant hairballs growing bigger“.
