The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) has announced the release of its newest version of its leading Open Source, NoSQL distributed database management system. As noted on the The Apache Software Foundation blog, Apache Cassandra version 0.6 is an advanced, second-generation 'NoSQL' distributed data store that has a shared-nothing architecture.


Apache Cassandra is a second-generation 'NoSQL' distributed data store that has a shared-nothing architecture.

"Originally developed at Facebook and submitted to the ASF Incubator in 2009, the Project has added more than a half-dozen new committers, and is deployed by dozens of high-profile users such as Cisco WebEx, Cloudkick, Digg, Facebook, Rackspace, Reddit, and Twitter, among others.

"Cassandra 0.6 features include:
- Support for Apache Hadoop: this allows running analytics queries with the leading map/reduce framework against data in Cassandra.
- Integrated row cache: this eliminates the need for a separate caching layer, thereby simplifying architectures.
- Increased speed: this builds on Cassandra's highly-launded ability to process thousands of writes per second, allowing solutions of all kinds to cope with increasing write loads."
