No Cassandra db?

I am exploring the idea of switching a Linux server with cassandra on it over to FreeBSD, but I see that cassandra support really isn't existent, correct? If I by chance was able to make that transition then, what would be a viable alternative to cassandra? Not a fan of the idea of compiling from source, it's a bit too wild-wild-west for what I'm looking to do and I like the idea that actual software devs would have looked it over before shoving it to ports/pkg

It really depends on what type of data is being stored and what you're trying to do with that data (query time). There are a bunch of very nice alternatives to Cassandra, most of them already in the ports tree. I would suggest that you break down the data types you're trying to store (time-series / text / image / etc) and weigh the pros & cons of each DB package (and what engine the packages include) in order to find a most suitable alternative.

Some of the major features I need are the NoSQL ideology that comes with Cassandra, along with it being distributed and lastly easy to port my existing data to the new database. Ultimately, there are some key features that exist in FreeBSD that I want over Linux, but a crucial element is a more seamless transfer of our existing software. As it stands, FreeBSD has everything I need except Cassandra and I'm unfamiliar with any alternatives

SirDice thank you for the heads up on the status of cassandra2
