My Notes:

  • Cassandra differs
    • No relational schema
    • Create columns and column families
  • Good for
    • Large scale sites with lots of similar data
  • If don’t have enough data for 8 node cluster (25 GB per cluster), not looking to grow to TB, probably better sticking with traditional database infrastructure
  • Cloud Computing
  • Why are open standards important? Enterprises are hesitant to repeat work – especially in a new environment.
