In part-1 of this series, we looked at Cassandra basics, compared it with RDBMS for good and bad, and then moved on to explore concepts like replication, partitioning, token ranges, consistency.
In part 2, we will explore in detail how Cassandra stores data i.e. write path and how data is retrieved i.e. read path. In this process, you will learn about some key concepts like memtable, SSTables, Co-ordinator, Compaction, Bloom filter, Row and key caches etc.
