Check out Anypoint Connector for Cassandra in Exchange.

Apache Cassandra is an open-source NoSQL database management system designed to handle large amounts of data across commodity hardware. Cassandra was initially developed at Facebook to power the Facebook inbox search feature, and became an Apache project in 2009. Since then, it has been adopted by more than 1,500 companies including Walmart, Netflix, Sony, Macy’s and UBS.

NoSQL with Apache Cassandra and Mule

motif

Apache Cassandra is a column-based, distributed NoSQL database.  Until recently the only way to interact with Cassandra databases from Mule was to reuse one of the existing Java clients, like Hector or Astyanax, in a component.  Mule’s Cassandra DB Module now provides message processors to insert, update, query and delete data in Cassandra.

To show off some of the features of the Cassandra module I’ll show how to implement a simple account management API.
