Cassandra has some features that are more useful for specific use cases where you have time series where you have huge amounts of writes. That should be quick, but not specifically the reads. We needed to have quicker reads and writes and this is why we are using Cassandra right now.

The solution is not easy to use because it is a big database and you have to learn the interface. This is the case though in most of these solutions.

It can be difficult to analyze what's going on inside of the database relative to other databases. It can also be difficult to troubleshoot sometimes.
