No SQL movement!

I have been trying/figuring/analyzing what this “NoSQL” movement is. Why are people moving away from RDBMS?

There are good reasons for it. I have been figuring out cassandra which facebook uses internally. I installed it on my windows machine (yes, it was a pain to install since the Read me file had all Linux commands/setup) and could successfully run on it! 😀
I am going to write on how to get started with cassandra soon.
