We start Apache Cassandra Training with the fundamental concepts of using a highly-scalable, column-oriented database to implement appropriate use cases. It will cover topics like Cassandra Datamodels, Cassandra Architecture, Differences between RDBMS and Cassandra to name a few. There will be many challenging, practical and focused hands-on exercises for the learners during this course.
Cassandra Training Objectives
After the completion of ‘Apache Cassandra’ course, you should be able to:
1. Understand Cassandra and NoSQL domain.
2. Create Cassandra cluster for different kinds of applications.
3. Understand Apache Cassandra Architecture.
4. Design and model Applications for Cassandra.
5. Port existing application from RDBMS to Cassandra.
6. Learn to use Cassandra with various programming languages.
Who should go for this course?
- A developer working with large-scale, high-volume websites.
- An application architect or data architect who needs to understand the available options for high-performance, decentralized, elastic data stores
- A database administrator or database developer currently working with standard relational database systems who needs to understand how to implement a fault-tolerant, eventually consistent data store
- A manager who wants to understand the advantages (and disadvantages) of Cassandra and related columnar databases to help make decisions about technology strategy
- A student, analyst, or researcher who is designing a project related to Cassandra or other non-relational data store options.
This course assumes no prior knowledge of Apache Cassandra or any other NoSQL database. Though some familiarity with Linux command line is essential, minimal exposure to Java,database or data-warehouse concepts is required.
Why Learn Apache Cassandra?
2. World’s largest Website (i.e Cassandra) is running over Cassandra.
3. Daily 100s of start-ups and large product companies are choosing Cassandra for their next generation computing and data platforms. Some companies using Cassandra are Facebook, Twitter, IBM, Cisco, Rackspace, NetFlix, eBay, Reddit, @WalmartLabs, Zoho, Digg and so on.
4. Apache Cassandra is open-source. It means you can deep dive into its source code and change it according to your own requirements.
5. The job market for Apache Cassandra is at peak and is growing at rate of 300%!
