About Apache Cassandra

Apache Cassandra is an open-source NoSQL database that helps businesses manage large amounts of data across multiple nodes, providing fast and reliable performance along with high availability.

The most popular use cases for Apache Cassandra are Backup/Archive, Big Data Analytics with Hadoop, and Log/Metrics Collection. With horizontal scalability, it can rapidly store, retrieve and manage data while providing high availability with no single point of failure.

Apache Cassandra offers robust support for clusters spanning multiple data centers, with asynchronous masterless replication allowing low latency operations for all clients.

Awesome No SQL DB

Reviewed on 27/11/2019

Pros

The is awesome tool for No SQL DB requirements. We use this to store transactions so that we can reprocess in case something goes down.

Cons

The Queries are little tough and most of the features of sql queries are not supported.

Looks good on paper but has been very costly in terms of required resources to finally manage the load.
Training material is limited and people with real experience are scarce.

Pros

Opensource license provides an easy cost entry point
Programmatic support for our purpose was very good.

Cons

There is only one commercial version of this product and licensing is high.
It can consume far more resources to handle the workload you give it than spec data suggests

A promising and powerful NoSQL database.

Reviewed on 28/01/2018

Pros

It is great for the right workload; with heavy writes and eventual consistency, it is a leader in the NoSQL space. I recommend Datastax for support using and supporting it.

Cons

Maintaining a cluster and an ops center server (for backups and monitoring) can get quite pricey. The learning curve of maintaining a cluster is a bit long.
