Apache Cassandra Town Halls are monthly opportunities to share use cases, tips, and learn about Cassandra project news. If you are an Apache Cassandra end user or part of the Cassandra engineering community, Town Halls are a great way to stay up-to-date on community activities.

Town halls occur at 8am PT on the fourth Thursday of every month.

Time Series Data Modeling for Massive Scale

Presented by Jon Haddad, Rustyrazorblade Consulting

Cassandra is known for its ability to horizontally scale as your data increases, but to get the most value, you need to know a few tricks. Jon has been optimizing databases for two decades, with the last ten years focused on Cassandra. In this Town Hall, Jon demonstrates how to handle one of the biggest Cassandra challenges of all: efficiently storing and retrieving over a petabyte of time series data accumulated over several years. He also covers some of the common pitfalls you’ll run into and the approach you should take to avoid each of them.
