This post of our Mesosphere HackWeek series covers the work carried out by community members around the integration of Apache Mesos and Apache Cassandra.
Cassandra is a NoSQL database designed to provide low-latency operations on large amounts of data spread across commodity servers or datacenters. It was developed by Facebook, and is now used by Instagram, Spotify, eBay and more, in use cases ranging from playlists to the Internet of Things. It’s also heavily used in the Mesos ecosystem: Chronos, for example, uses Cassandra for job history, reporting and statistics.
For more information on how to benefit from Cassandra in the context of Mesos and the Mesosphere Datacenter Operating System (DCOS), see:
- The Cassandra-Mesos GitHub repo
