What You’ll Learn in this Presentation:

Corporate use of NoSQL systems has increased dramatically over the last few years. Best Buy has implemented multiple systems using various NoSQL engines. In this presentation, we will take an in depth review of how BestBuy.com uses both Cassandra and Riak to solve business problems while meeting the technical demands of one of North America’s largest online retailers. We will review two solutions, one using Cassandra and one using Riak. These solutions are highly distributed and highly responsive while serving specific business needs. We will provide an overview of the main lessons learned along with best practices we have developed in our journey.
