4klift is a set of PHP components for developing highly available, redundant and scalable web sites or services on top of Apache Cassandra.
Cassandra makes 4klift well suited for server side applications requiring greater than 99.99% service availability while also being able to withstand up to millions of read and write operations per second.
This framework of components can be used together or individually. Many components may be used individually in a variety of other frameworks, including Symfony, Silex, Laraval and Drupal.
Pre-Alpha / In Progress
We are in the process of preparing some of our libraries for open source. This development VM is also a work-in-progress and may result in additional packages installed on provision and eventually a new base box with many of the provisioned requirements pre-installed. However, this remains a useful VM for high performance web development.
We target software that can run on CentOS 6.7. 4klift is required to run on a wide range of enterprise systems that may be venerable in internet years, but very stable. However, these are simply minimal requirements; every effort is taken to ensure 4klift's ability to run on modern distributions.
To use the latest dev version, use the dev-master branch.
