Cassandra was open sourced by Facebook in 2008 and is licencied under Apache Licenses.
The reason of this move as explained by digg is that their primary motivation for moving away from MySQL was the increasing difficulty of building a high performance, write intensive, application on a data set that is growing quickly, with no end in sight. This growth has forced them into horizontal and vertical partitioning strategies that have eliminated most of the value of a relational database, while still incurring all the overhead"
