- What is it?

        Pandra (PHP-Cassandra) is a light-weight PHP based create/read/update/delete (CRUD) layer for the Cassandra distributed datastore.
        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

        * Supports UUID types

        * Flexible arrangement of Keyspaces, Column Families and Super Columns (implements ArrayAccess)

        * Schema aware and factory objects

        * Extensible Logging interface

- Dependencies

        * Cassandra >= 0.6

        * Thrift Interface (tested cassandra.thrift and pre-generated files are packaged)

        * PHP >= 5.3

        - Optional

            * Model Generation - syck yaml

            * Caching - APC or Memcached (PECL)

            * Logging - Syslog, Sendmail and FirePHP
