Apache Cassandra, and why BASE is great for real-time analytics

A session at All Your Base Conference

Inspired by Google's BigTable and Amazon's Dynamo papers, Apache Cassandra was built at Facebook.

It now has a thriving community and is widely adopted at a number of high-profile companies, including Twitter, Netflix, Cisco and Ebay.

In this talk we will look at the features unique to Cassandra, and discuss its strengths and weaknesses.

We'll then focus on one pattern of usage that dominates in Cassandra circles -- performing real-time analytics on high velocity data.
