The newest version of the open source NoSQL distributed database management system, Cassandra, is available today.
"In response to the growing need for scalable, high-throughput databases, we are pleased to release Cassandra 0.6," Apache Cassandra Project Management Committee Chair Jonathan Ellis said. "It's fantastic seeing the Project's community at the ASF grow to match the promise of the technology."
"The services we provide to customers are only as good the systems they are built on," said Eric Evans, Apache Cassandra committer and Systems Architect at The Rackspace Cloud. "With Cassandra, we get the fault-tolerance and availability our customers demand, and the scalability we need to make things work."
