It's both - it is Sansevieria cylindrica, a relative of the much more common variegated form of Sansevieria trifasciata (often called Mother in Law's Tongue). It is a succulent plant which prefers bright daylight without direct sun, and around the same temperatures we humans like, so between 50 to 85 °F. It does grow quite quickly, and may need a larger pot annually, see here for further care instructions How to Grow the African Spear Plant.
Since, I first answered this question I have shared it with various succulent enthusiast and Sansevieria growers. They confirmed that the following response is a 100% accurate. I use to work as a professional succulent plant grower. We grew two types of Sansevieria this plant and S. cylindrica. This is absolutely not cylindrica. It's actually a Sensevieria hybrid called ‘Fernwood’ (S. parva x S. suffruticosa), developed by the late hybridizer Rogers Weld of Fernwood Nursery in California. It is easily confused, since it looks similar to S. cylindrica and even more similar to S. bacularis. Larry Hodgson of Laidback Gardener writes an article that describes this hybrid and it's creator and how it is different from S. cylindra and S. bacularis Link to lighthouse nursery selling Fernwood
As evident by the smooth concave indent of the upper side of your leaf. S. cylindrica is rounded on all side, lacking any indent.
