This month we have a series of talks by MetaBroadcast on moving from MongoDB to Cassandra. MetaBroadcast first blogged about this in July - and it's a topic that is guaranteed to attract attention.
We'll have three talks covering different aspects of the move, starting from 7.30pm:
- Fred van den Driessche, Engineer
What MetaBroadcast does, our data model, and why Mongo doesn't meet the challenge anymore
- Tom McAdam, CTO
Why we're moving to Cassandra, paired with other technologies like ElasticSearch
- Adam Horwich, Systems Engineer
The ops of Mongo vs Cassandra, monitoring, disaster recovery, having a nice life while running a highly available system
In addition to the talks there will be, as usual, plenty of opportunity to meet other Cassandra users and enjoy robust discussions around NoSQL.
Cassandra London would not be what it is without its dedicated supporters. This month we are fortunate to be supported by DataStax who will be helping out with the costs and supplying some free stuff. DataStax are one of the largest supporters of the Cassandra project and offer comprehensive support as well as their own distribution of Cassandra, Hadoop and Solr (DataStax Enterprise).
Finally, if you're interested in speaking at Cassandra London, please get in touch! The most interesting talks are always those where real users explain their use case.
