Stratio presented its open source Lucene-based implementation of Cassandra’s secondary indexes at Cassandra Summit London 2014, which provided several search engine features. It used to be distributed as a fork of Apache Cassandra, which was a huge problem both for users and maintainers. Nowadays, due to some changes introduced at C* 2.1.6, we are proud to announce that it has become a plugin that can be attached to the official Apache Cassandra.
With the plugin we have been able to provide C* with geospatial capabilities, making it possible to index geographical positions and perform bounding box and radial distance queries. This is achieved through Lucene’s geospatial module.
