Cassandra does what?

In this talk Aaron Morton will be previewing his upcoming Code Mania (http://codemania.co.nz/) talk. This session will cover how data is distributed, fault tolerance, eventual consistency, read repair, hinted handoff, anti-entrophy, distributed deletes, column oriented data model and the read and write paths. By the end you'll have a god idea about how Cassandra is different to a traditional RDBMS and why it can make your life easier.

    Very informative. NoSQL technology and usage is only just beginning to scratch the surface.

    Should probably mention, Cassandra is written in Java.
