6:20-7:50: Apache Cassandra - Tim Berglund
What do you do when your data is not only big, but also needs to be fast? Apache Cassandra is a scalable, fault-tolerant database that has found its way into more than 25% of the Fortune 100 and continues to enjoy significant adoption in the marketplace. In this talk, we’ll explore Cassandra’s internals, its flexible data model, its SQL-like query language, some deployment scenarios, and some common language bindings. You’ll leave ready to begin exploring Cassandra on your own!
