In Apache Cassandra Lunch #25: Cassandra Use Cases – Reference Architectures, we cover how Cassandra is used for real-time data platforms; as well as, cover different reference architectures in which Cassandra is and can be used. The live recording of Cassandra Lunch, which includes a more in-depth discussion, is also embedded below in case you were not able to attend live. If you would like to attend Apache Cassandra Lunch live, it is hosted every Wednesday at 12 PM EST. Register here now!

In Apache Cassandra Lunch #25: Cassandra Use Cases – Reference Architectures, we cover how Cassandra is used for real-time data platforms by different users and 3rd party technologies; as well as, cover different reference architectures in which Cassandra is and can be used.

The majority of Apache Cassandra Lunch #25 is spent going through the SlideShare embedded below and discussing in-depth the use cases of Cassandra in the relevant reference architectures. Other technologies we review and discuss how they work with Cassandra in the reference architectures include Spark, Kafka, Akka, Alpakka, Kafka Connect, and Kafka Streams. Again, be sure to watch the video because we go in-depth on specific slides; as well as, take a look at and discuss reference architectures from Stratio, Starburst, and Snowflake, which are not included in the embedded SlideShare.

Also, if you missed Apache Cassandra Lunch #24: Cassandra Use Cases, where we discuss a number of use cases for Cassandra, focusing on Cassandra’s place in running a digital business technology platform such as a customer experience platform, a data and analytics platforms, an information systems platform, and even an IoT platform. The live recording of Cassandra Lunch #24 is also included in that blog, but you can also check out our Cassandra.Lunch playlist here. Don’t forget to subscribe while you are there!
