For this meetup we are excited to be joined by Brian Lynch, Solutions Architect for Google Cloud Platform.
What You'll Learn At This Meetup:
At Google, we're used to dealing with massive scale. The Google Cloud Platform is no different. We're exposing the tools that allow us to routinely process billions of queries and 100,000+ hours of video a day. Google Compute Engine allows you to run awesome databases like Cassandra at massive scale. To prove that, we set up a test to drive 1 Million requests a second to a Cassandra Cluster on Compute Engine. Along the way, we had to tune the installation to take advantage of our Cloud technologies. The final setup takes advantage of the flexibility of cloud computing while delivering performance you expect. In this presentation, we'll show how you can tune Cassandra on Google Compute Engine to deliver high performance that scales.
