Vendor
Java Architect at a tech vendor with 51-200 employees
Sep 06 2017

What is most valuable?

* Simple ring architecture * Replication using peer-to-peer protocol rather than leader selection * Linear scalability (99%) * Configurable consistency

How has it helped my organization?

Ability to achieve write speeds 10k tps: Compared to existing, it is 300% percent higher.

What needs improvement?

Row-level locking is not available; might be very helpful in update use cases.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

The earlier solution used Couchbase, which has leader selection. At times, when leader selection takes time, then we would lose the transactions. This got resolved with the peer-to-peer architecture solution in Cassandra.

What is Cassandra?

A scalable multi-master database with no single points of failure. Scalability & high availability without compromising performance.
