Want to go deep on a popular NoSQL database? Cassandra is a scalable, highly available, column-oriented data store in use at Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Rackspace, and other web-scale operations. It offers a compelling combination of a rich data model, a robust deployment track record, and a sound architecture. Get to know NoSQL better by studying this leading solution.
In this session, we'll talk about Cassandra's data model, work through its API in Java and Groovy, talk about how to deploy it, and look at use cases in which it is an appropriate data storage solution. We'll study its origins in the Amazon Dynamo project and Google's BigTable, and learn how its architecture helps us achieve the gold standard of scalability: horizontal scalability on commodity hardware. You'll leave prepared to begin experimenting with Cassandra immediately and planning its adoption in your next project.
