Are you sure you want a "big data" database at all.  Keep in mind that they have no foreign keys and therefore not many mechanisms to enforce relational integrity.  Of course these databases are are new and exciting but make sure that you have the right tool for the job.  If your system has a lot a data relationships and won't be storing a bunch of multi-media files you probably want to go for a classic relational database.  Here is a good article I found on the subject.  http://blog.rdx.com/cassandra-and-relational-database-schema-comparison-query-vs-relationship-modeling
