As big data sweeps the world there has been a growing need for databases that provide scalable and flexible storage solutions. NoSQLs are the answer to this and among the most popular NoSQLs is Cassandra helping organizations handle complex web applications and data proliferation. This course will help you master Apache Cassandra and take up industry challenges with success.
The NoSQL market is expected to reach $4.2 Billion globally by 2020. Cassandra holds a major share of this market due to its open source nature, peer to peer architecture, elastic scalability, high availability and performance and fault tolerance. This course will introduce you to the fundamentals of Cassandra, and with hands-on exercises you will go from learning about the basics to the more advanced concepts such as Cassandra Data models, Architecture, configuration, read and write data and integration with Hadoop.
Enrol now and make most use of the popularity of this technology to make a high profile career.
