Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable features of Cassandra are the NoSQL database, high performance, and zero-copy streaming.""The solution's database capabilities are very good.""A consistent solution.""The time series data was one of the best features along with auto publishing.""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 most valuable features are the counter features and the NoSQL schema. It also has good scalability. You can scale Cassandra to any finite level.""Some of the valued features of this solution are it has good performance and failover.""I am satisfied with the performance."

More Cassandra Pros →

"MemSQL supports the MySQL protocol, and many functions are similar, so the learning curve is very short."

More SingleStore Pros →

Cons
"Doesn't support a solution that can give aggregation.""The secondary index in Cassandra was a bit problematic and could be improved.""Cassandra could be more user-friendly like MongoDB.""There could be more integration, and it could be more user-friendly.""Cassandra can improve by adding more built-in tools. For example, if you want to do some maintenance activities in the cluster, we have to depend on third-party tools. Having these tools build-in would be e benefit.""The disc space is lacking. You need to free it up as you are working.""The solution doesn't have joins between tables so you need other tools for that.""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."

More Cassandra Cons →

"There should be more pipelines available because I think that if MemSQL can connect to other services, that would be great."

More SingleStore Cons →
