Well, the update is pretty much late and simple. I've deployed Cassandra in our cluster. With a simple tweaking the config file, it was a breeze to set it up. The requirements are simple (Java 1.6, thats it) and easy.
Next on the update for tomorrow is using a JPA compatible library for Cassandra. A beautiful project that helps you get your job done, so quickly and easily.
