Building fault tolerant applications with Cassandra

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Building fault tolerant applications requires application developers to change their mindset. There's no point building a resilient application if its database is a single point of failure. This talk will go into Cassandra’s fault tolerant architecture and why it was the Datastore of choice for companies like Netflix.

We'll have brief introduction to Apache Cassandra, how to interact with it from Java and how its architecture is built around being tolerant to faults. Then we'll talk about how developers' mindset needs to change when dealing with a distributed datastore, topics include: CAP theorem and cross datacenter latency.

People should leave with a good understanding of Cassandra and how using a distributed database is very different from a traditional relational database.
