DataStax takes Cassandra in-memory

NoSQL startup DataStax announced on Wednesday that it has added an in-memory option to its commercial version of the Cassandra key-value database. Cassandra is seeing an uptick in adoption right now because of its scalability and ability to span data centers, and the ability to serve data from memory instead of disk will make it a lot faster, too. If the approaches of startups like DataStax, MemSQL and others are any indication, it looks like databases of the future will feature broad ranges of capabilities, data formats and storage options.
