Title:
CQL performance with Apache Cassandra 3.0

Abstract:
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.

In this talk Aaron Morton, Co Founder at The Last Pickle and Apache Cassandra Committer, will discuss the 3.0 storage engine, it's layout and performance characteristics.

Title:
Hardening Cassandra for Compliance (or Paranoia)

Abstract:
This presentation goes deep into the details of securing Cassandra. In this talk, Nate McCal, Co Founder of The Last Pickle will cover everything from encryption both at rest and on the wire, to authentication and access control as well as securing access to management and tooling.
There should be useful information for experienced Cassandra operators as well as an idea of what to expect when going to production for those new to Cassandra.
