For this meetup we are excited to be joined by Aaron Morton, Co Founder at The Last Pickle and Apache Cassandra Committer. Aaron will discuss the 3.0 storage engine, it's layout and performance characteristics.

What You'll Learn At This Meetup:

The 3.0 storage engine re-write is the biggest and most exciting change to ever happen in Apache Cassandra. The new storage engine can efficiently store and read data from disk using the same concepts present in the CQL 3 language. This has delivered large space savings, and creates new performance characteristics.
