When it comes to making an application available to the public, or to a private group within an organisation, consumers of those applications expect the same two things: availability at any time and immediate responsiveness.
It’s no wonder half of the population falls in tears when their favourite application such as Instagram or Facebook become unavailable for a short moment, as seen recently.
Building an IT infrastructure that provides the kind of availability we now come to expect is not a simple task. To achieve that, you need to rely on physical redundant infrastructure blocks, and on technologies that can leverage this redundancy. One of those technologies is Cassandra.
This talk will focus on the key mechanism that makes Cassandra so reliable.
The Presentation will cover
- The different level of availability you might want to reach
- How to achieve it and the pros and cons of each solution.
At the end of this talk, you will have a better understanding of the Cassandra build in multi data center feature and be able to make the right Cassandra architecture decision to balance cost vs availability.
