Apache Cassandra : The Interplanetary Database - Business Platform Team

Placeholder

This resource is based on an article originally published here.

Just imagine a business platform that needs to work for people not just in three contents, but three planets. The idea is not as farfetched as you may think.

The technology that powers global brands across the earth is going to be the interplanetary database of the future. If you are a platform leader, administrator, developer, or architect, you may not be building and managing interplanetary platforms, but that may will change in the next 5-10 years.

If you remember, the Internet was made public roughly 40 years ago, but in only 20 years, the dot-com bubble happened. It is not a matter of if, but a matter of when we will have to think about business & knowledge communications platforms that span the solar system, or at least between Earth, Moon, and maybe mars. Just imagine a business platform that needs to work for people not just in three contents, but three planets. As space technology is democratized and privatized, there will be a legitimate need for interplanetary platforms.

Cassandra in short provides two things that businesses need: an infinitely scalable database that can be resilient and fast; a way to synchronize information across multiple complete datacenters around the world in different contents. Just imagine a business platform that needs to work for people not just in three contents, but three planets.
