Apache Cassandra is a second-generation distributed database originally open-sourced by Facebook. Its write-optimized shared-nothing architecture results in excellent performance and scalability.

Cassandra moves away from the master-slave model and instead uses a peer-to-peer model. This means there is no single master but all the nodes are potentially masters. This makes the writes and reads extremely scalable and even allows nodes to function in cases of partition tolerance.


Apache Cassandra is an open-source project and a second-generation distributed NoSQL database. It is the best choice for higher availability and scalability of the database. Cassandra supports replication across multiple datacenters. It makes the write and read processes highly scalable by offering tunable consistency.

The Apache Cassandra training course provides an overview of the following:

  • Fundamentals of big data and NoSQL databases
  • Cassandra and its features
  • Architecture and data model of Cassandra
  • Installation, configuration, and monitoring of Cassandra
  • Hadoop ecosystem of products around Cassandra


  • Knowledge of any SQL based data base
  • Knowledge of Java (Preferred not mandatory for Developers)
