Databases are better when they can run themselves. CockroachDB is a SQL database that automates scaling and recovery. Check it out here.

Datastax recently announced the release of Cassandra 1.2.0 and listed some of it's key improvements.  From the original post: 

Key improvements include:
  • Virtual nodes, which improve the granularity of capacity increases and dramatically improve repair and rebuild times in larger clusters. See also this post on upgrading an existing cluster to vnodes.
  • Atomic batches address the possibility of mid-batch coordinator failure.
  • Last but not least, many performance improvements to memory usage, column indexes, compaction, streaming, startup time, and more.

Databases should be easy to deploy, easy to use, and easy to scale. If you agree, you should check out CockroachDB, a scalable SQL database built for businesses of every size. Check it out here.
