Acunu: Cassandra on Steroids

A session at Hacker News London May 2011

NOSQL stores offer good solutions for webscale apps but are suffering from fundamental limitations in the storage stack, hindering their performance in many ways like having highly unpredictable performance under load. Acunu has re-engineered the storage stack for the purpose of big data in what we believe to be the "most ambitious storage project undertaken since ZFS". Acunu is launching its public beta this week, showcasing how it makes Apache Cassandra dramatically faster and more predictable while bringing unique one-click data cloning that will transform the lives of developers during the dev-test cycle.
