Cassandra is recognized as the best distributed database leveraging continuous availability and partition-tolerance for global deployments. With a strong open source history that began at Facebook to solve problems of absurdly massive scale, Cassandra has grown to be a huge project with a bright future. In this talk we will take a peek at exactly what that future is all about. With a brand new, high performance Secondary Index implementation, SSTable encryptions, a paradigm shift in architecture moving away from SEDA and towards threads per core, Materialized Views and Aggregations, Cassandra is maturing as a powerful front-runner on the bleeding edge of the NoSQL space.
