An Introduction to Cassandra and the DataStax Java Driver
An Introduction to Cassandra and the DataStax Java Driver.
Cassandra is a distributed key/value database that offers linear scalability and high performance. It is modeled after Amazon's Dynamo and Google's BigTable.
In this presentation I will provide an overview of some of Cassandra's key features such as high availability, fault tolerance, minimal configuration, and multi-data center support. I will discuss data modeling and how a relation data model maps to Cassandra.
We will then look more closely at working with CQL and programming with the DataStax Java driver. I will touch on some of the driver's features like discovery, load balancing, prepared/batch statements, and asynchronous requests.
