Hadoop and Cassandra Merge In 'Brisk' Package [pcworld.com]
Uniting the seemingly conflicting values of fast data access and deep analysis, open-source software company DataStax is developing a package that will combine its Cassandra non-relational database with Apache Hadoop data process framework, the company announced Wednesday.

The distribution, to be called Brisk, combines low-latency data storage and retrieval with the ability to do in-depth analysis of that data, said Matt Pfeil, CEO and co-founder of DataStax, formerly called Riptano.

Cassandra has been traditionally used by Web 2.0 companies that require a fast and scalable way to store simple data sets, while Hadoop has been used for analyzing vast amounts of data across many servers.

Sounds like BigTable and MapReduce in an open source version. Soon everyone who wants Google's processing power only needs to buy enough hardware boxes and download a few software packages.
