The Cassandra database, one of the "NoSQL"-themed databases, uses a very different approach to data storage and modeling (and retrieval and scale) than the traditional relational database. In this session, you'll get a first-hand look at the Cassandra column-oriented data model, how Cassandra stores things in a "ring" of servers to scale, and more importantly, how to store, retrieve, and scale it.
You will learn:
- How to install and set up Cassandra
- How to store and retrieve data from Cassandra
- How Cassandra fits into your overall architecture
