Autumn Cassandra kick-off

Dear Barcelona Cassandra members!!!

It's been long time since our last meetup. I am very pleased to announce in mid-September Midokura will host our next event, presenting use cases from the commercial practice with Cassandra. 

20th September would be a very special day for the society. Three months ago the group had only 13 members during the first event. Now it has expanded 3 times more!

I am looking forward to meeting all of you and discussing any enlightening topics in the field and suggestions on how to expand the society.

If you have any ideas for the meetup, contact the organizers.

    The autumn C* kick-off was great as many professionals turned up, the presentation which Galo gave was in-depth, as well in the end there was a vivid Q&A session.

    A great and depth explanation about a cassandra particular implementation. It was great to know people working into SDN-like implementations at Barcelona. :-)

    Hi everyone! It's less than 2 weeks the event so I thought I would offer some details about the contents of the talk.

    Midokura uses Cassandra as part of Midonet: a scalable, distributed network virtualization solution aimed at large clouds (think service
    providers, hosting companies, big corporations, etc.).

    I'll introduce our main technical challenges explaining why we chose C*
    over other alternatives (both RDBMs and NoSQL). This'll
    give us a chance to go into C*'s architecture, data model, and
    some other internal details, reviewing our experience so far.

    C* has some limitations that led us to use Zookeeper for part of our data and we're investigating options to rearchitect Midonet's storage layer in order to overcome them. I'm sure we'll learn from discussing your experiences.

    I'm paying attention to the interests and preferred topics on your sign up forms so do let me know your expectations here at the event's board or email galo at midokura dot com.
