The Apache Software Foundation announced today the release of Apache Cassandra 0.7.

"Apache Cassandra is a key component in cloud computing and other applications that deal with massive amounts of data and high query volumes," said Jonathan Ellis, Vice President of Apache Cassandra. "It is particularly successful in powering large web sites with sharp growth rates."

Cassandra is used by Cisco, Facebook, Twitter and Digg to manage huge data sets that need to scale.

"Our traffic more than tripled this year," Reddit lead developer David King said, "and the transparent scalability afforded to us by Apache Cassandra is in large part what allowed us to do it on our limited resources. Cassandra v0.7 represents the real-life operations lessons learned from installations like ours and provides further features like column expiration that allow us to scale even more of our infrastructure."
