Taught by a team which includes 2 Stanford-educated, ex-Googlers and 2 ex-Flipkart Lead Analysts. This team has decades of practical experience in working with large-scale data processing.
Has your data gotten huge, unwieldy and hard to manage with a traditional database? Is your data unstructured with an expanding list of attributes? Do you want to ensure your data is always available even with server crashes? Look beyond Hadoop - the Cassandra distributed database is the solution to your problems.
Let's parse that.
- Huge, unwieldy data: This course helps your set up a cluster with multiple nodes to distribute data across machines
- Unstructured: Cassandra is a columnar store. There are no empty cells or space wasted when you store data with variable and expanding attributes
- Always available: Cassandra uses partitioning and replication to ensure that your data is available even when nodes in a cluster go down
What's included in this course:
- The Cassandra Cluster Manager (CCM) to set up and manage your cluster
- The Cassandra Query Language (CQL) to create keyspaces, column families, perform CRUD operations on column families and other administrative tasks
- Designing primary keys and secondary indexes, partitioning and clustering keys
- Restrictions on queries based on primary and secondary key design
- Tunable consistency using quorum and local quorum. Read and write consistency in a node
- Architecture and Storage components: Commit Log, MemTable, SSTables, Bloom Filters, Index File, Summary File and Data File
- A real world project: A Miniature Catalog Management System using the Cassandra Java driver
Using discussion forums
Please use the discussion forums on this course to engage with other students and to help each other out. Unfortunately, much as we would like to, it is not possible for us at Loonycorn to respond to individual questions from students:-(
We're super small and self-funded with only 2 people developing technical video content. Our mission is to make high-quality courses available at super low prices.
The only way to keep our prices this low is to *NOT offer additional technical support over email or in-person*. The truth is, direct support is hugely expensive and just does not scale.
We understand that this is not ideal and that a lot of students might benefit from this additional support. Hiring resources for additional support would make our offering much more expensive, thus defeating our original purpose.
It is a hard trade-off.
Thank you for your patience and understanding!
