Practical Cassandra is the first hands-on developer’s guide to building systems that deliver on Cassandra’s promises of extraordinary speed, scalability, reliability, and performance. Two pioneering Cassandra developers – including Russell Bradberry, primary author of Cassandra’s NodeJS driver – walk the reader through every step of building a real production application. Drawing on their exceptional expertise, they share deep insights into issues ranging from querying to deployment, management, maintenance, and monitoring.
