Phoenix Cassandra Users Meetup on Tuesday September 24th, 2013
Michael Penick, Software Architect at GoDaddy, will be focusing this session on the data structures and algorithms that have made Cassandra a scalable and performant database, while also exploring the low-level details of its implementation.
Cassandra is an interesting piece of software for many reasons, but it is especially interesting in its use of elegant data structures and algorithms. This talk will focus on the data structures and algorithms that make C* such a scalable and performant database. We will walk along the write, read and delete paths exploring the low-level details of how each of these operations work. We will also explore some of the background processes that maintain availability and performance. The goal of this talk is to gain a deeper understanding of C* by exploring the low-level details of its implementation.
Cassandra users residing in the Phoenix, AZ area? Be sure to join us at our next meetup, at the Phoenix Cassandra Users Group.
