Building a Scalable Geospatial Database on top of Apache Cassandra

A session at Cloudstock

This talk will explore the real world technical challenges we overcame at SimpleGeo while building a spatial database on top of Apache Cassandra. Cassandra offers simple decentralized operations, no single point of failure, and near-linear horizontal scalability. But Cassandra fell far short of providing the sort of sophisticated spatial queries we need. Our challenge was to bridge that gap.
