Apache Cassandra: NoSQL Applications in the Enterprise Today

A session at Strata 2012

Thursday 1st March, 2012

10:40am to 11:20am (PST)

This session will shed light on real-world use cases for NoSQL databases by providing case studies from enterprise production users taking advantage of the massively scalable and highly-available architecture of Apache Cassandra.

  • Netflix – See how, with Cassandra, Netflix achieved cloud-enabled business agility, capacity and application flexibility, and never worried about running out of space or power.
  • Backupify – Cassandra enables reliable, redundant and scalable low-balance data storage, eliminating downtime and ensuring they can backup customer data around the clock.
  • Ooyala – The elastically scalable Cassandra database allows Ooyala to absorb and leverage massive amounts of digital video data by simply adding nodes which can grow to hundreds or thousands.
  • Constant Contact – Cassandra enables Constant Contact to massively scale an operationally simple application that deployed in 3 months for $250k, compared to 9 months for $2.5 million if they used a traditional RDBMS.

At the end of this session you will have an good understanding of the types of requirements Cassandra can satisfy through a carefully thought-out architecture designed to manage all forms of modern data, that scales to meet the requirements of “big data” management, that offers linear performance scale-out capabilities, and delivers the type of high availability that most every online, 24×7 application needs.
