Inside the Cassandra distributed database

Jonathan Ellis

Despite the growing demands placed on databases, traditional relational solutions scale poorly.

Cassandra is a distributed database combining the best of Google's Bigtable and Amazon's Dynamo and is in use at Facebook, Twitter, Rackspace, and more companies that have large, active data sets. The largest production cluster has over 100 TB of data in over 150 machines.

This session will cover Cassandra's architecture and data model and case studies of how Cassandra is being used.
