Cassandra vs Elassandra: What are the differences?
What is Cassandra? A partitioned row store. Rows are organized into tables with a required primary key. Partitioning means that Cassandra can distribute your data across multiple machines in an application-transparent matter. Cassandra will automatically repartition as machines are added and removed from the cluster. Row store means that like relational databases, Cassandra organizes data by rows and columns. The Cassandra Query Language (CQL) is a close relative of SQL.
What is Elassandra? Elasticsearch implemented on top of Cassandra. Elassandra is a fork of Elasticsearch modified to run on top of Apache Cassandra in a scalable and resilient peer-to-peer architecture. Elasticsearch code is embedded in Cassanda nodes providing advanced search features on Cassandra tables and Cassandra serve as an Elasticsearch data and configuration store.
Cassandra and Elassandra are primarily classified as "Databases" and "Search" tools respectively.
Cassandra and Elassandra are both open source tools. Cassandra with 5.27K GitHub stars and 2.35K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Elassandra with 1.24K GitHub stars and 140 GitHub forks.
