Format: Paperback
His book is an excellent primer on Cassandra. The initial sections are clear and concise, describing the necessary fundamentals required to get started. IMHO, to be successful with Cassandra, you need to undersand the distributed storage model. Nishant does a great job of describing this, and the write path, another critical element.

About half way through, the book transitions, focusing much more on example code. Nishant 's bias creeps in a bit here, focusing heavily on Kundera. I have mixed emotions about accessing Cassandra from JPA. But I think its absolutely critical if you are attempting to consolidate storage into a single database. If you are, Kundera is perfect. It allows you to use Cassandra like any other relational store.

this book helps to deploy a production setup and monitor it, understand what happens under the hood, and how to optimize and integrate it with other software. understand Cassandra’s philosophy and design decisions and it can also be implemented it to resolve business issues and run complex applications simultaneously.
set up a cluster that can face a tornado of data reads and writes without wincing. More recommended for beginners

HASH(0x9331a0f0) out of 5 stars It's already outdated, unfortunately. 10 Dec. 2013
By Enterprise TechEnabler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I hate to say this, because I appreciate the work good technical writers do. But, this book is out of date, already. Other than a 30 page "intro" quality chapter bolted onto the end, this book - published about six weeks ago, as of this review - discusses Cassandra 1.1.11.

Unfortunately, for the reader, Cassandra 1.2 was released nearly a year ago, last January, and introduced two very major changes: CQL and virtual nodes ("vnodes"), neither of which are much discussed in this book, other than in the short last chapter. Yet, CQL fundamentally changes how you work with Cassandra. Worse, Cassandra 2.0 is already out, and up to version 2.0.3.

So, while there's still some useful discussion in this book, it's behind the curve of a fast moving product.

HASH(0x939ce4ec) out of 5 stars Out of date but good content 30 Jan. 2014
By NazHus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The books contents are good and covers the core features of Cassandra. However it is of little help when the book is published a version old (1.1.11).... Where as Cassandra is now on version 2.0.4.
