Apache Cassandra is a robust second-generation distributed database. Its write-optimized shared-nothing architecture results in massive scalability, making it a popular choice at organizations such as Twitter, Digg, and Rackspace.
This tutorial will cover the step-by-step setup of a single-node instance of Cassandra, before moving on to explore Twissandra, a simple Twitter clone written in Python and Django. Finally, best practices for provisioning and supporting a production cluster will be presented.
NOTE: Please read through the prerequisites and instructions for this tutorial here.
Eric Evans is an Apache Cassandra committer and Debian Developer working on distributed systems at The Rackspace Cloud.
