Why Learn Apache Cassandra ?

Apache Cassandra™, an Apache Software Foundation project, is an open-source NoSQL distributed database management system. Apache Cassandra was originally developed at Facebook, and is used by many companies today. While many developers have embraced simpler NoSQL variants (like MongoDB and CouchDB), Cassandra is possibly at the forefront of the NoSQL innovation, providing a level of reliability and fine tuning not found in many of the competitors' offerings. When it comes to scaling, nothing scales like it, the biggest example being the Facebook which uses Cassandra for storing petabytes of Data.
