Sitting ontop of the generated Thrift Interface files, it suits as a factory patterned rapid prototyping tool. "Cassandra is a highly scalable, eventually consistent, distributed, structured key-value store. Cassandra brings together the distributed systems technologies from Dynamo and the data model from Google's BigTable. Like Dynamo, Cassandra is eventually consistent. Like BigTable, Cassandra provides a ColumnFamily-based data model richer than typical key/value systems. Cassandra was open sourced by Facebook in 2008, where it was designed by one of the authors of Amazon's Dynamo. In a lot of ways you can think of Cassandra as Dynamo 2.0. Cassandra is in production use at Facebook but is still under heavy development." - http://incubator.apache.org/cassandra/ Pandra can be installed and interfaced in a few minutes, building your API or web service on a highly redundant datastore can be realised with relative ease. - Key Features * Clear demarcation of columfamily objects from the underlying cluster connection handlers * Supports any number of Cassandra nodes, tweakable consistency levels * Extensible type definition, validation and callback layers * UUID Column Families * Flexible arrangement of Keyspaces, Column Families and Super Columns (implements ArrayAccess) * Schema aware, or build factory objects on the fly - Dependencies * Cassandra >= 0.6 * Thrift Interface (tested cassandra.thrift and pre-generated files are packaged) * PHP >= 5.3 (APC and Memcached suggested) * OSSP PHP-UUID module * scyk yaml (optional) - Download Latest snapshot : git checkout git://github.com/mjpearson/Pandra.git . - or - Latest stable tag : http://github.com/mjpearson/Pandra/tarball/0.1 - Community The Pandra homepage is http://www.phpgrease.net/projects/Pandra For feedback, bugs and general support discussion see http://groups.google.com/group/pandra-user Developers : http://groups.google.com/group/pandra-dev Github users may also log bugs directly via http://github.com/mjpearson/pandra/issues
