A Quick Look into Cassandra (A SQL Perspective)

Relational databases (SQL) have been around since the ’70s and dominated way to store data. Then came the rise of the web. This changed the way we access data and the needs we have from our database systems. Enter Cassandra, a highly available, fault-tolerant, distributed, NoSQL database born from Facebook and designed for the needs of the web. SDS Developer Michael Timko presents a quick introduction into what Cassandra is, how it works, and compares it to common relational databases (MySQL, SQL Server) to show why Cassandra (and other NoSQL systems) may be the best solution for your next project.
