This month we are continuing the "Cassandra vs" theme of last month by taking a look at HBase. We're lucky to have Nick Telford talking on the subject who has used both Cassandra and HBase in a real "big data" production environment at Datasift. We will also be looking at Cassandra more closely, examining how it deals with various failure modes. This talk will be given by Richard Low from Acunu who big data experts and offer professional support for Apache Cassandra.
In addition to the talks there will be, as usual, plenty of opportunity to meet other Cassandra users and enjoy robust discussions around NoSQL.
