C 2012: Technical Deep Dive: Data Modeling
Cassandra stores data fundamentally differently than traditional RDBMS. These differences allow for vast improvements in performance, availability and scalability, but in order to achieve the gains one must understand the differences. In this webcast, the presenter explains about Cassandra solution to a problem often believed to only be solvable in a strictly ACID compliant system. The focus of the solution is on the data model and the interactions with it to achieve scalability, availability and performance at scale.
