Cassandra Review

Excellent for technical evaluation and managing very large amounts of data

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is developing software for others and it's really a solution for enterprise size companies. We're like integrators and we have numerous technical partners that implement. We have a partnership with the company, implementing the service on projects. I'm a managing director of the company. 

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature for us is the technical evaluation, it's the best technology. Cassandra is good for us. 

What needs improvement?

The interface could definitely be improved. It's a technical database and for me the features are not user friendly. I also think it's quite an expensive solution and I hope over time with more implementations, this will improve.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for two years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is stable. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This is a scalable solution. 

How are customer service and technical support?

From what I know, customer support is fine. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is a little complex and each time we use a specialist for deployment. It depends on the nature of the implementation as to how long deployment takes. 

What other advice do I have?

We don't use this solution like a common database. It's really for people using big data, BI and other analytic software. You need to have the right use case to take this product. 

I would rate this solution a nine out of 10. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
