Apache Cassandra solves many interesting problems to provide a scalable, distributed, fault tolerant database. Cluster wide operations track node membership, direct requests and implement consistency guarantees. At the node level, the Log Structured storage engine provides high performance reads and writes. All of this is implemented in a Java code base that has greatly matured over the past few years.
This month Aaron Morton, Apache Cassandra Committer, will present a talk previously given at ApacheCon in February 2013 and the Cassandra Summit in June 2013. The talk will step through the different layers of the architecture, discuss the general approach to solving the problem and drill down to the code responsible for implementation.
Doors open 5:30pm for a 6:00pm start, should be finished by 8:00pm.
