Hands-on Cassandra

Video Description

Apache Cassandra is a robust second-generation distributed database. Its write-optimized shared-nothing architecture results in massive scalability, making it a popular choice at organizations such as Twitter, Digg, and Rackspace.

This video covers the step-by-step setup of a single-node instance of Cassandra, before moving on to explore Twissandra, a simple Twitter clone written in Python and Django. Finally, best practices for provisioning and supporting a production cluster are presented.
