Description
This course will support the students understanding of Cassandra and NoSQL, and will highlight the differences between traditional RDBMS (SQL systems)and Cassandra (NoSQL). In addition the course will discuss the benefits of using Cassandra in a distributed framework to provide availability, scalability, and business continuity. The course will cover the mechanics and architecture of Casandra, the fundamentals of Cassandra data modeling and best practices, and the Cassandra Query Language (CQL). The first course serves as a foundation for course #2.
