Thoughts on Apache Cassandra? Seems awesome, but are there any gotchas we should know about before diving in? Currently we use Postgresql for most things.

    It's good for specific, very write-heavy tasks but it has a lot of limitations on how you can query, update and delete your data since it's sharded.

    But yeah, I think it depends on your use case.

    Thanks for the info. It sounds like it will probably work well for the task we initially were looking into it for, but maybe not so much for replacing our main PostgreSQL servers.

    @Onyx1640 yeah I don't think it would be suitable to replace, unless your querying needs are very, very simple.
