Course Description

Apache Cassandra is a decentralized, distributed, wide-column store that provides great performance at petabyte-scale data for specific types of data and operations. Cassandra is great for data that can be accessed via unique keys and where each row has potentially very different column attributes.

In this course, learn how to install Cassandra and make it available for use with Docker. Next, discover how to create Cassandra clusters and inspect them using the nodetool utility. Finally, explore how to leverage a datacenter in Cassandra, correctly use the snitch, and set the snitch used to the GossipingPropertyFileSnitch.

Upon completion, you'll be able to enumerate the defining attributes of Apache Cassandra and identify when to use and not use Cassandra.
