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.

Pros and Cons

  • "Can achieve continuous data without a single downtime because of node to node ring architecture."
  • "I am getting much better performance than relational databases."
  • "Maybe they can improve their performance in data fetching from a high volume of data sets."
