Cassandra is an open-source distributed NoSQL database management system from Apache, which is designed for sorting and managing a large amount of structured data across several commodity servers. It has the ability to serve as both a read-intensive database for large-scale BI (Business Intelligence) systems and a real-time operational data store for the online transactional apps.
It is a NoSQL Column family execution. It has the ability to support the big table data model utilizing the architectural aspects presented by Amazon Dynamo. This database is developed and designed to hold peer-to-peer symmetric nodes to make sure there can never be a SPoF (Single Point of Failure).
It automatically partitions data all over nodes in the database cluster. However, the admin has the authority to determine that what data is required to be replicated and how many copies of the data are needed to be created.
