Bret Piatt talks about Cassandra at the O'Reilly Velocity Conference

Bret Piatt held a session on Cassandra at the O’Reilly Velocity Web Performance and Operations Conference last week. He was interviewed by Matt Slocum while there and addresses the following questions:

  • How does Cassandra differ from traditional relational databases?
  • What types of sites and services work best with Cassandra?
  • Is there a tipping point for a site or service moving to Cassandra?
  • Why are open standards so important for cloud computing?
  • Will we get to the point where businesses will rely on cloud resources instead of building out their own infrastructure?
