5 Best Properties of Cassandra Database

Cassandra is highly scalability and high availability without compromising performance NoSQL database. Cassandra's support for replicating across multiple datacenters and manage a large set of data.

There are following properties of Cassandra Database.

Properties of Cassandra Database
  • Fault Tolerant: - Data is automatically replicated to multiple nodes for fault-tolerance. Replication across multiple data centers is supported. Failed nodes can be replaced with no downtime.
  • Performer: - Cassandra consistently outperforms popular NoSQL alternatives in benchmarks and real applications, primarily because of fundamental architectural choices.
  • Decentralized: - There are no single points of failure. There are no network bottlenecks. Every node in the cluster is identical.
  • Scalable: - Some of the largest production deployments include Apple's, with over 75,000 nodes storing over 10 PB of data, Netflix (2,500 nodes, 420 TB, over 1 trillion requests per day), Chinese search engine Easou (270 nodes, 300 TB, over 800 million requests per day), and eBay (over 100 nodes, 250 TB).
  • Durable: - Cassandra is suitable for applications that can't afford to lose data, even when an entire data center goes down.
