5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent primer
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,...

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
