What Is Cassandra?
Apache Cassandra is an open-source distributed NoSQL database designed to manage Petabytes of information. Originally developed at Facebook, it was later released as an open-source product and is now used by many businesses with large datasets.
Who Uses Cassandra?
Cassandra is used by many companies with large datasets. Users include Apple, Netflix, CERN, Comcast, Instagram, Reddit, and The Weather Channel.
Why is Cassandra Popular?
Cassandra is popular because it is highly scalable, fast, and uses peer-to-peer architecture, which enables continuous availability and provides it with excellent fault tolerance. This ensures that your app is always up and available for your customers to use. Additionally, Cassandra is free to use.
