Taking the pain out of repairs

Incremental Repairs, added in Cassandra 2.1, are designed to take the pain out of repairing your cluster. By taking advantage of the work performed by previous repair sessions, each new session need only consider new data which can reduce the time and computing resources needed. Even with these advances repairs can still seem like an "Advanced Cassandra" topic.

In this talk Mick Semb Wever, team member at The Last Pickle, will explain why we need repair, how it works, when to do it, and how Incremental Repairs may take the pain away.
