Basic understanding of Cassandra features coupled with client driver features can be a very powerful combination. This talk will be an introduction but will deep dive into the technical details of how Cassandra works

Review: Cassandra lowers the barriers to big data

Apache Cassandra 2.0 combines NoSQL flexibility and scalability with friendly SQL-like queries

 Apache Cassandra is a free, open source NoSQL database designed to manage very large data sets (think petabytes) across large clusters of commodity servers. Among many distinguishing features, Cassandra excels at scaling writes as well as reads, and its “master-less” architecture makes creating and expanding clusters relatively straightforward. For organizations seeking a data store that can support rapid and massive growth, Cassandra should be high on the list of options to consider.
