A bit about Cassandra

Things you need to know about Cassandra before using any Cassandra Consulting company

What is Cassandra?

Apache Cassandra is an open-source, distributed NoSQL database system known for its scalability and high performance. It was initially developed by Facebook for its Inbox Search functionality and is designed to handle massive data across numerous commodity servers, ensuring high availability without a single point of failure. As a top-level Apache project, Cassandra maintains a robust distributed architecture with automatic data replication across nodes for fault tolerance, making it an ideal solution for handling vast amounts of data.

What are Databases?

A computer database is an organized collection of data that can be manipulated and accessed through specialized software

Why use Databases?

    The use of databases integration into any software development project out there is crucial, consisting of many useful benefits:

    • Databases provide efficient means for searching, sorting and retrieving specific information.
    • They help maintaining data integrity and consistency through the use of constraints and data validation.
    • Centralized storage allows multiple users to access and update the data simultaneously.
    • Data availability is ensured through backup and recovery options.
    • Access controls and permission settings can be used to secure the data.
    • They facilitate sharing of data among multiple applications and systems, improving interoperability.
    • Data integration with other systems is made easier, enhancing data analysis and reporting.
    • Automated updating and maintenance improves data accuracy and reduces errors.
    • They can handle large amount of data and increasing number of users by scaling.

    Why use Cassandra?

    Here are some of the key reasons why you might choose to use Cassandra:

    • Cassandra is designed to be distributed across many servers, providing high availability and no single point of failure. Unlike traditional database systems, it doesn't have a master node – all participating nodes are identical, ensuring there are no bottlenecks or single points of failure.
    • ‍Cassandra is highly scalable; it allows for the addition of more hardware to accommodate more customers and more data as per requirement.
    • Data is automatically replicated to multiple nodes for fault-tolerance. This replication across multiple data centers ensures that even if a complete data center goes down, the system remains operational.
    • Cassandra provides a high write throughput and can handle high read loads, making it suitable for applications that require fast and intensive data operations.
    • Cassandra is a column-oriented database and can handle structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data.
    • Cassandra provides tunable consistency. For example, you can set Cassandra for strong consistency, or you can loosen the consistency requirements in favor of higher availability or faster performance.
    • Cassandra allows for easy data distribution across the servers, and its elastic scalability feature enables it to increase and decrease the quantity of servers seamlessly without interrupting the running applications.

    Cassandra is typically a good fit for applications that need to handle large amounts of data across many commodity servers and cannot afford to lose data, even when an entire data center goes down. Some examples include messaging systems, logs, sensor data, and so on.

    Why get our help with Cassandra?

    Some of the things we did with Apache Cassandra include:

    • Provisioned production-grade Cassandra clusters on AWS using Terraform
    • Optimized Cassandra's performance by tuning its configuration
    • Created backup and restore processes for large-scale point-in-time restoration of entire clusters
    • Performed Zero-Downtime upgrades on production Cassandra clusters
    • Architected Cassandra clusters and configured them for the right balance between performance and fault tolerance by tweaking various parameters, such as its compaction strategy and its replication factor
    • Deployed Cassandra on AWS with a topology designed to improve performance and reduce costs

    How can we help you with Cassandra?

    Our work with Cassandra allowed us to accumulate the tools, knowledge, and processes required to get any operation's Cassandra clusters to where it should be.
    These are some of the things we can help you build and improve:

    • Provisioning of production-grade Cassandra clusters on AWS using Terraform.
    • Optimization of Cassandra's performance by tuning its configuration.
    • Creation of backup and restore processes for large-scale, point-in-time restoration of entire clusters.
    • Execution of zero-downtime upgrades on production Cassandra clusters.
    • Architecture design and configuration of Cassandra clusters for the right balance between performance and fault tolerance. This involves tweaking various parameters, such as its compaction strategy and its replication factor.
    • Deployment of Cassandra on AWS with a topology designed to improve performance and reduce costs.
    • Migration from databases like MySQL and PostgreSQL to Cassandra
