For the third year in a row, I’ll be at Cassandra Summit, the annual gathering of the Cassandra community, hosted by DataStax. I’ve been invited by (Talena)[] to give a short talk called Cassandra data modeling feel like a strait jacket? Break free with DSE Search. I’m a big fan of the scaling and power of Cassandra, but making ad-hoc queries is a pain! I’ll be in the vendor area giving the talk on Wednesday.

Come by and check out Talena’s really slick backup/data management/single pane of glass product. It somehow makes backing up Cassandra seem fun! I saw it first last year, and it’s evolved a lot since then.
