Cassandra vs KairosDB: 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, KairosDB is detailed as "Fast Time Series Database on Cassandra". KairosDB is a fast distributed scalable time series database written on top of Cassandra.
Cassandra and KairosDB can be primarily classified as "Databases" tools.
Cassandra and KairosDB are both open source tools. Cassandra with 5.27K GitHub stars and 2.35K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than KairosDB with 1.46K GitHub stars and 302 GitHub forks.
