Slides from my presentation at Cassandra Summit Europe 2013.
Every year more and more people buy their Christmas gifts online and that gifts are delivered by the postal service of France "La Poste".
At the end of the infrastructure a (not so) little MySQL was struggling for survival against that overwhelming load.
Then, in 2011, MySQL hit its limit... Come hear the true story of La Poste switching its parcel management, PHP-based application, from MySQL to Cassandra in 3 weeks.
You'll be taught about the details of the project constraints, how to use Cassandra from PHP, the migration plan, how to manage resilience testing, deploy your Cassandra with Puppet, and all the wonderful knowledge we accumulate through this project.
