Your First 6 Months With Cassandra In Production

This talk is aimed at experienced DBAs, DevOps and operations teams who might become accidental Cassandra DBAs and are looking to gain some critical knowledge to help them get through the first 6 months of a production Cassandra deployment, or for those who are just interested in hearing about a realistic journey for going into production with Cassandra.


This talk will cover: 

– High level overview of Cassandra and how it works

– Data model considerations

– Planning for production (setup, benchmarking, availability planning)

– Issues you may face in production and how to fix them.
