Functional Use Case: Product Catalog, Data Store

Cisco specializes in networking and communications technology.  They develop, manufacture, and sell a wide range of networking hardware, software, and services for enterprises, service providers, small businesses, and individuals.

Cisco uses Apache Cassandra to back their Commerce Renewals platform.  This application allows Cisco to serve various products and services to their customers, handling more than 4 million quotes every year.  Since its migration to Cassandra, Commerce Renewals has not experienced any downtime.  This is significant, because the system’s legacy database required a complete shutdown once per quarter.

Having this system on Apache Cassandra helps Cisco to ensure that their customers always have a pleasant experience. Cassandra’s peer-to-peer architecture, automatic data replication, and built-in fault tolerance allow Cisco to distribute data across multiple nodes and withstand hardware failures. This ensures that Cisco’s services can continue to operate reliably even in the face of infrastructure issues.
