Streaming My Sessions With Cassandra 5.0

As a long time participant with the Cassandra project, I’ve witnessed firsthand the evolution of this incredible database. From its early days to the present, our journey has been marked by continuous innovation, challenges, and a relentless pursuit of excellence. I’m thrilled to share that I’ll be streaming several working sessions over the next several weeks as I evaluate the latest builds and test out new features as we move toward the 5.0 release.

Starting Tuesday, March 5, I’ll be firing up clusters and messing with the latest builds of 5.0.
This first week I’ll look at compaction, specifically UCS. UCS is designed to be a single compaction strategy with tunable options that can handle any workload and help push up node density, making Cassandra less expensive to operate. Let’s see how it holds up against easy-cass-stress!

The stream will be available on LinkedIn or my YouTube channel.
