Cassandra and DataStax Enterprise have made it a lot easier to build distributed applications by providing a solid persistence layer that distributes well, is highly available, and comes with an intuitive programming model.
So what if you could have all of the nice things DataStax Enterprise provides to you at your application layer too?
1. An intuitive programming model;
2. High availability;
3. Reliability; and
4. The ability to decouple application design from network topology.
Well it turns out you can do this easier than ever before using the Actor Model and Akka.NET. This talk explains how.
