Many architects and developers today are targeting Apache Cassandra™and DataStax Enterprise (DSE) as their database of choice because of its ability to easily scale and perform under extreme workloads. Developers like the fact that no modifications are required on their part if the application is initially written to just use one DSE node, but scales into hundreds in the future.

Here’s a talk Cedrick Lunven (who I have the fortune of working with!) about creating API’s for your database, your distributed database. He starts out with a few objectives for the talk:

  1. Provide you a working API implementing Rest, gRPC, and GraphQL.
  2. Give implementation details through Demo.
  3. Reveal hints to choose and WHY, (specifically to work with Databases)

DataStax powers the Right-Now Enterprise with the always-on, distributed cloud database built on Apache Cassandra™ and designed for hybrid cloud. So let's get started.

There are several options to install DSE which are documented here. In this tutorial, I will use the Lifecycle Manager (LCM) which allows you to easily provision, configure, and install DataStax Enterprise clusters.

Snitches. What a great name for a feature right? I’d bring up the Harry Potter thing, but I’m gonna let that one fly. (get it, it flies!)

In this series, I’ve been sharing about my experience building my first Python application — an implementation of the KillrVideo microservice tier. In the previous posts, I’ve shared my motivations for this project and how I started things out by building GRPC service stubs. This time, I’ll dig into the next step in developing the application — advertising the service endpoints in etcd.

Let’s talk about the analogy of Apache Cassandra Datacenter & Racks to actual datacenter and racks. I kind of enjoy the use of the terms datacenter and racks to describe architectural elements of Cassandra. However, as time moves on the relationship between these terms and why they’re called datacenter and racks can be obfuscated.

In the first post in this series, I described the KillrVideo reference application and my motivation for creating a new implementation of the microservices tier for KillrVideo in Python.

In this post, I’d like to start tracing the development of this Python application in somewhat chronological order. So, here goes…

When I worked at Basho in 2013, I wrote about consistent hashing as part of a series called “Learning About Distributed Databases”. Today I’m kicking that back off after a few years (ok, after 5 or so years!) with this post on consistent hashing.

After a busy fall of travel doing advocacy at Strata NYC and several DataStax Developer Day events, I had the privilege of a month with no travel. I figured this was the perfect time to take on a development project I’d been thinking about for a while: creating an implementation of the KillrVideo reference application in Python — specifically, the microservices tier.

The DataStax Developer Relations team has been on the road a lot lately, meeting our developer communities at events like Developer Days and industry conferences. We’ve had so many great conversations that we thought we’d share some of the highlights with you.
