Interested in time series use cases? For example, storing and processing financial or sensor data? Apache Cassandra has proven to be one of the best solutions for storing and retrieving time series data at high velocity and high volume.

This talk will give you an overview of the many ways you can be successful. We will discuss how the storage model of Cassandra is well suited for this pattern and go over examples of how best to build data models. There will also be examples of how you can use Apache Spark along with Apache Cassandra to create a real time data analytics platform. It’s so easy, you will be shocked and ready to try it yourself.
