The recent advances in distributed database applications have created the need for large storage which should be scalable and should not be restricted to schema constraints. In this move many companies are moving from relational database systems to Non-relational database systems, particularly known as NoSQL databases. As opposed to relational database systems, these new database systems lagging in providing security in order to achieve high performance and scalability. Cassandra is one among the several existing NoSQL databases whose primary concern is scalability, high availability and no single point of failure for retrieving the stored data.
