TwitterTwitter currently runs a couple hundred Cassandra nodes across a half dozen clusters. These span a variety of workloads– from time series to data, to low latency, high throughput key/value. Each workload has led the team to new techniques for operating Cassandra at scale. Chris Goffinet, an engineer at Twitter and Cassandra committer, will be sharing some of the most interesting ones. For those of you interested in Cassandra and operations, this is a must-attend talk.

Chris GoffinetChris Goffinet is an engineer at Twitter, and he is magic. In his own words: My passion is to work on cutting-edge problems, that require the understanding of the entire stack, top to bottom. I enjoy working on technologies that require low-level knowledge of operating systems and the networking stack. Prior to joining Twitter, Chris was the Senior Infrastructure Engineer at Digg and a Senior Performance Engineer at Yahoo.
