Russ Spitzer returns to the show to discuss the benefits of combining Cassandra and Spark, the new release of the DataStax Spark-Cassandra connector, and why the proprietary features that used to ship with DataStax Enterprise have now been merged into the open-source project. We also check in on the Spark 3.0 Beta and discuss the tradeoffs in various ways you can deploy Spark and Cassandra together.
