Cassandra Crunch Training Course Description

Apache Cassandra is a second-generation distributed database originally open-sourced by Facebook. Its write-optimized shared-nothing architecture results in excellent performance and scalability.

Cassandra moves away from the master-slave model and instead uses a peer-to-peer model. This means there is no single master but all the nodes are potential masters. This makes the writes and reads extremely scalable and even allows nodes to function in cases of partition tolerance.

Apache Cassandra is an open-source project and a second-generation distributed NoSQL database. It is the best choice for higher availability and scalability of the database. Cassandra supports replication across multiple data centers. It makes the write and read processes highly scalable by offering tunable consistency.
