This book is a fantastic guide to the ins and outs of the Cassandra database solution and how to apply the right design patterns in real-world situations. An essential tutorial for architects and developers.
Cassandra is a powerful data store solution in the open source NoSQL world. The ability to use its vast capabilities correctly is the need of the hour as more developers start using this powerful tool. Hence, it becomes important to be able to understand how and where to apply Cassandra correctly.
This practical guide will help you understand the strengths and weaknesses of Cassandra and teach you to how to identify business and technical use cases that Cassandra solves.You will also learn how to solve real world business problems and enable you to use Cassandra in the best possible way.
Starting with the origins of Cassandra, this book will delve into how Cassandra solves the traditional big data’s volume, variety and velocity problems. You will then discover use cases and design patterns that every architect and developer faces when designing new solutions, and understand how to use Cassandra to solve these challenges,as well as how to avoid common mistakes and using Cassandra incorrectly.
The book uses design strategies and code samples in order to help you understand the nuances of the use case and design patterns. Finally, after learning about the design patterns to be used in Cassandra, you will develop an understanding of how Cassandra can be used in conjunction with other leading solutions to solve complex real world problems.
