Description:The Apache Cassandra database is the right choice when you need scalability and high availability without compromising performance
Abstract: The Apache Cassandra database is the right choice when you need scalability and high availability without compromising performance. Linear scalability and proven fault-tolerance on commodity hardware or cloud infrastructure make it the perfect platform for mission-critical data. Cassandra’s support for replicating across multiple datacenters is best-in-class, providing lower latency for your users and the peace of mind of knowing that you can survive regional outages.
Cassandra’s data model offers the convenience of column indexes with the performance of log-structured updates, strong support for denormalization and materialized views, and powerful built-in caching.
This Virtual Machine has been created by the EGI Federated Cloud using a minimal CentOS 6.7 installation with cloud-init contextualization. In order to log into the image a ssh key must be used, default user is named ”centos”.
