DataStax Co-Founder to Discuss Status of Apache Cassandra Versus Cloud Databases at Strata Data Conference New York


powering the Right-Now Enterprise with the always-on, distributed cloud
database built on Apache Cassandra™, today announced that Co-Founder and
CTO Jonathan Ellis will present a talk on the status of Apache Cassandra
versus cloud databases at the Strata
Data Conference
on September 13 in New York.

Hosted by O'Reilly Media, Strata Data Conference is the largest annual
event that brings together data's most influential business decision
makers, strategists, architects, developers and analysts to discuss the
most important and emerging trends in the data industry. DataStax is a
sponsor of the conference (Booth 1502), which runs from September 11-13
at the Javits Center in New York.


Data& Data Science in the Cloud session: Cassandra versus Cloud

The presentation, targeted to data architects, will speak to the
ways Apache Cassandra remains a relevant database management system
after its recent tenth anniversary. Discussion will cover
Cassandra's strengths and weaknesses relative to Amazon DynamoDB,
Microsoft CosmosDB and Google Cloud Spanner and cover the trade-offs
they make for the CAP theorem, the data model they expose, how they
handle cross-region replication and the consistency guarantees they
offer. Ellis will provide a brief overview of the architecture of
each system, either published or inferred, and the implications
those have for their suitability for different workloads. Attendees
will leave with an understanding of the unique features of each
system and knowledge of which ones their company should prioritize
for infrastructure investment.
