"The open source Apache Cassandra NoSQL database, since its inception, has been focused on being highly scalable.

"With the new Cassandra 0.7 release this week, that scalability is being improved with secondary indexes and large row support for database rows of up to two billion columns per row.

"Apache Cassandra 0.7 follows the 0.6 release, which came out in April of 2010. The Cassandra database was originally begun by developers at Facebook and has since been adopted by multiple web properties including Twitter, Digg and Reddit. Commercial support is available by way of startup Riptano."
