Cassandra vs Oracle: What are the differences?

Developers describe Cassandra as "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. On the other hand, Oracle is detailed as "An RDBMS that implements object-oriented features such as user-defined types, inheritance, and polymorphism". Oracle Database is an RDBMS. An RDBMS that implements object-oriented features such as user-defined types, inheritance, and polymorphism is called an object-relational database management system (ORDBMS). Oracle Database has extended the relational model to an object-relational model, making it possible to store complex business models in a relational database.

Cassandra and Oracle belong to "Databases" category of the tech stack.

"Distributed" is the primary reason why developers consider Cassandra over the competitors, whereas "Reliable" was stated as the key factor in picking Oracle.

Cassandra is an open source tool with 5.27K GitHub stars and 2.35K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Cassandra's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, Cassandra has a broader approval, being mentioned in 342 company stacks & 239 developers stacks; compared to Oracle, which is listed in 106 company stacks and 92 developer stacks.

What is Cassandra?

Partitioning means that Cassandra can distribute your data across multiple machines in an application-transparent matter.

What is Oracle?

Oracle Database is an RDBMS. An RDBMS that implements object-oriented features such as user-defined types, inheritance, and polymorphism is called an object-relational database management system (ORDBMS). Oracle Database has extended the relational model to an object-relational model, making it possible to store complex business models in a relational database.

HBase
Apache HBase is an open-source, distributed, versioned, column-oriented store modeled after Google' Bigtable: A Distributed Storage System for Structured Data by Chang et al. Just as Bigtable leverages the distributed data storage provided by the Google File System, HBase provides Bigtable-like capabilities on top of Apache Hadoop.
Hadoop
The Apache Hadoop software library is a framework that allows for the distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of computers using simple programming models. It is designed to scale up from single servers to thousands of machines, each offering local computation and storage.
Redis
Redis is an open source, BSD licensed, advanced key-value store. It is often referred to as a data structure server since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets and sorted sets.
Couchbase
Developed as an alternative to traditionally inflexible SQL databases, the Couchbase NoSQL database is built on an open source foundation and architected to help developers solve real-world problems and meet high scalability demands.
MySQL
The MySQL software delivers a very fast, multi-threaded, multi-user, and robust SQL (Structured Query Language) database server. MySQL Server is intended for mission-critical, heavy-load production systems as well as for embedding into mass-deployed software.

      Stitch is a wrapper around a Cassandra database. It has a web application that provides read-access to the counts through an HTTP API. The counts are written to Cassandra in two distinct ways, and it's possible to use either or both of them:

      • Real-time: For real-time updates, Stitch has a processor application that handles a stream of events coming from a broker and increments the appropriate counts in Cassandra.

      • Batch: The batch part is a MapReduce job running on Hadoop that reads event logs, calculates the overall totals, and bulk loads this into Cassandra.

      Cassandra is our data management workhorse. It handles all our key-value services, supports time-series data storage and retrieval, securely stores all our audit trails, and backs our Datomic database.

      While we experimented with Cassandra in the past, we are no longer using it. It is, however, open for consideration in future projects.

      We are using Cassandra in a few of our apps. One of them is as a count service application to track the number of shares, clicks.. etc
