Apache Cassandra™ is the practitioner’s choice for massively scalable, geo-distributed applications and services that use large volumes of data with no tolerance for downtime.
Cassandra is among the most successful NoSQL databases today, the proven choice of the largest applications on the internet from Netflix to the Fortune 100.
That said, the challenges of constructing globally-distributed applications at extreme scale are daunting. Fortunately, the Cassandra community has an arsenal of tooling to simplify each stage of operating, integrating, and developing applications with Cassandra.
In this paper, tailored for a technical audience with moderate experience with database systems, we discuss the range of utilities at your disposal for building and running successful Cassandra applications.
