"Understanding and Managing Cassandra's Vnodes + Under the Hood: Acunu Analytics" - In this talk, Tim Moreton, Founder and CTO at Acunu Analytics, and Nicolas Favre-Felix, Software Engineer at Acunu Analytics, share the concept, implementation and benefits of virtual nodes in Apache Cassandra 1.2 & 2.0. They also go over why virtual nodes are a replacement to token management, and how to use Acunu Analytics to collect event data, build OLAP-style cubes and ask SQL-like queries via a RESTful API, on top of Cassandra. This talk was recorded at the DataStax Cassandra SF users group meetup.
