…the right choice when you need scalability and high availability without compromising performance. Linear scalability and proven fault-tolerance on commodity hardware or cloud infrastructure make it the perfect platform for mission-critical data. Cassandra’s support for replicating across multiple datacenters is best-in-class, providing lower latency for your users and the peace of mind of knowing that you can survive regional outages.
This post stands as the first in a series of posts discussing how we at Geofeedia are pushing Cassandra and proving out that scalability and fault-tolerance. In particular this post will focus on our strategy for running not only a cross-region Cassandra cluster in the cloud, but also cross-cloud, as well as our attempts to implement a consistent and reliable backup strategy.[...]
