A Database Month event http://www.DBMonth.com/database/cassandra

In this presentation you will learn how to be ready to deploy Cassandra in production, along with what issues and challenges you can expect to experience during the first 6 months after deployment.

This presentation is required-material for any DBAs, DevOps and operations-teams who may potentially need to manage Cassandra instances, or are just looking to gain critical knowledge of what to expect in the first 6 months of a production Cassandra deployment, as well as those who are just interested in hearing about a realistic journey into production Cassandra.

Some of the topics that we will covered are:

• High level overview of Cassandra, and how it works

• Data model considerations

• Planning for production

• Setup

• Benchmarking

• Availability planning

• Issues that you may face in production and how to fix them
