About this item
With this hands-on guide, you'll learn how Apache Cassandra handles hundreds of terabytes of data while remaining highly available across multiple data centers—capabilities that have attracted Facebook, Twitter, and other data-intensive companies. Updated for Cassandra 3.0, this second edition provides the technical details and practical examples you need to assess this database management system and put it to work in a production environment.
Authors Jeff Carpenter and Eben Hewitt demonstrate the advantages of Cassandra's nonrelational design, and pay special attention to data modeling. If you're a developer, DBA, application architect, or manager looking to solve a database scaling issue or future-proof your application, this guide shows you how to harness Cassandra's speed and flexibility.
