From Oracle to Cassandra with Spark

Fausto Inestroza and Shambho Krishnasamy, The Allant Group

Want your enterprise to scale out while containing cost? Customer Data Integration is a core Master-Data-Management (MDM) function for most enterprises: being intentional about where to perform your most resource-consuming data management processes, and choosing the right open-source columnar data store, can help. In this talk we will look at the migration of Allant’s CDI-keying engine, built using JMS and Oracle, to an architecture centered around Cassandra as the data store.

Extending Cassandra for Fun and Profit

Gary Dusbabek

With just a few modifications, you can leverage the Cassandra codebase to build new and interesting distributed systems. All it takes is a basic understanding of some Cassandra internals, and some Java skill. In this presentation I will walk you through the practical considerations, such as determining which use-cases may warrant extending or embedding Cassandra, and the steps involved to add new functionality to the database. Participants will learn how they can use Cassandra as a platform for building a custom distributed system, while gaining a code-level understanding of Cassandra internals.
