Cassandra Review

Can achieve continuous data without a single downtime because of node to node ring architecture


What is our primary use case?

I designed a product catalog data model in Cassandra according to their features and properties, loading millions of data and performing the required queries over it. 

Now, I am getting much better performance than relational databases.

What is most valuable?

Here are some features which have been really helpful in my organisation:

  • High Avaialability
  • No downtime
  • Better performance
  • Greater scalability.

HA is one of the great features of Cassandra with no downtime, e.g., you can achieve continuous data without a single downtime because of node to node ring architecture.

What needs improvement?

Maybe they can improve their performance in data fetching from a high volume of data sets. 

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I had to compare Cassandra with MongoDB. MongoDB is much better in data fetching than Cassandra.
