HBase vs Cassandra & comparing NOSQL solutions

with one comment

If like me, you have moved your enterprise to the NOSQL database camp, you will trying to figure out which NOSQL database will be the best long term option. This is no easy task, because we are still at the beginning of the cycle.

Our choice came down to HBase vs Cassandra. We chose HBase for its vibrant community, faithful Google BigTable-like design and because it can use hadoop for storage (which is already quite mature). Right now we’re quite far down the road with HBase but trying to keep our minds open.

Checkout the first serious comparison of NOSQL solutions I found. Cassandra does nicely. hmm:
