Cassandra Overview and 1.2 Features with Patrick McFadin

  • March 19, 2013 · 6:30 PM

We will be joining the San Diego Java Users for this upcoming meetup!

Abstract: The Apache Cassandra database is the right choice when you need scalability and high availability without compromising performance. Linear scalability and proven fault-tolerance on commodity hardware or cloud infrastructure make it the perfect platform for mission-critical data. Cassandra's support for replicating across multiple datacenters is best-in-class, providing lower latency for your users and the peace of mind of knowing that you can survive regional outages.

Bio: Patrick McFadin is a Principle Solutions Architect at DataStax, the commercial company behind Apache Cassandra. Prior to his work at DataStax he was the Chief Architect at Hobsons, an education services company. He obtained a BS in Computer Engineering from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and holds the distinction of being the only recipient of a medal (as anyone can find out) for hacking while serving in the US Navy.
