Dispelling Top Apache Cassandra Myths
As we know, the end-of-life policy for data put out on the Web sometimes seems to be eternal. This can be both good and bad depending on the situation, but when it comes to outdated information – the kind that can cause you to make a wrong decision because you found obsolete data and acted on it – it’s definitely bad.
In addition to old data on the Web, you have just plain wrong observations that people make and put out for all to see. These, combined with outdated information, typically give rise to myths that happen to not be true about something, but are repeated and passed around so much that people think that they are.
There are currently a number of myths online that need to be dispelled concerning Cassandra so our CTO and co-founder Jonathan Ellis just published a great article on separating fact from fiction that anyone interested in Cassandra should read.
