Cassandra stands out amongst the big data products in its ability to handle optimized writes of large amounts of data while providing configurable fault tolerance and data integrity. Two popular libraries that allow the JVM developer to leverage these capabilities are Hector and the recently open sourced Astyanax. In this talk, Joe presents examples of storing time series data in a Cassandra data store using both of these libraries. There will be code! As an added bonus, a mechanism to unit test using an embedded Cassandra client will be presented.
