What You'll Learn At This Meetup:
• Cassandra @ Instagram
Presenters: Andrew Whang & Pengchao Wang
Cassandra plays a key role in Instagram's data serving architecture. In this talk we will give an overview of our Cassandra deployment and highlight the product use cases built on Cassandra. We will cover the data model used to support these use cases.
• Data Abstraction and API
Presenter: Chen Shen
Among all Cassandra use cases in Instagram, we summarized three access patterns. Thus we defined three abstract data types and provide API for each of them, which makes both our client and us happier.
• Managing Cassandra @ Instagram
Presenter: Dave Gadling
The presentation will give a brief history of the evolution of Cassandra management at Instagram. Along the way Dave will discuss some of the techniques he's learned to ease into automation without needing to have a complete system ready at once. Dave will also discuss some of the decisions that were made along the way which have made managing Cassandra easier and in some cases more challenging.
• C* Token Allocation
Presenter: Dikang Gu
This will be a deep dive into the new token allocation algorithm in Cassandra 3.0 http://www.datastax.com/dev/blog/token-allocation-algorithm. Dikang will present the problems we have about the random token allocation, the improvements and fixes we’ve made to push the algorithm into our production environments. • A big thank you to Instagram for hosting, presenting and providing food and drinks! Remember to RSVP on their event page.
