The History of Apache Cassandra
HBase vs Cassandra By default, Phoenix distribution is unable to connect to secure cluster. But, Phoenix can connect to a secure HBase cluster by modifying sqlline.sh script and setting up some more java parameters. Great thing about this solution is that no java code modification is required.

Upgrading Cassandra: 0.8.x to 1.0.x | DataStax Cassandra 1.0 Documentation This section describes how to upgrade Cassandra 0.8.x to 1.0.x and how to upgrade between minor releases of Cassandra 1.0.x.
What’s new in Cassandra 1.0: Compression Cassandra 1.0 introduces support for data compression on a per-ColumnFamily basis, one of the most-requested features since the project started. Compression maximizes the storage capacity of your Cassandra nodes by reducing the volume of data on disk.

Tuning Cassandra | DataStax Cassandra 0.8 Documentation Effective tuning depends not only on the types of operations your cluster performs most frequently, but also on the shape of the data itself.

More and more instrumentation is being added to Cassandra via standard JMX apis. The nodetool utility (nodeprobe in versions prior to 0.6) provides a simple command line interface to these exposed operations and attributes. See Operations for a more high-level view of when you would want to use the actions described here. NodeTool - Cassandra Wiki
I was looking at Cassandra, one of the major NoSQL solutions, and I was immediately impressed with its write speed even on my notebook. But I also noticed that it was very volatile in its response time, so I took a deeper look at it. First Cassandra Write Test I did the first write tests on my local machine, but I had a goal in mind. I wanted to see how fast I could insert 150K data points each consisting of 3 values. Cassandra Write Performance – A quick look inside Application Performance

Linux performance basics I want to write about Cassandra performance tuning, but first I need to cover some basics: how to use vmstat, iostat, and top to understand what part of your system is the bottleneck -- not just for Cassandra but for any system.
Sometimes, data comes with an expiration date, either by its nature or because it’s simply intractable to keep all of a rapidly growing dataset indefinitely. What’s new in Cassandra 0.7: expiring columns
