We're happy to welcome Cake Solutions' technical director, Anirvan Chakraborty, in this In the Brain session focusing on Docker, Cassandra, and Amazon ECS best practices.
Containers have become a key component of modern distributed application design. Similarly, Apache Cassandra has emerged as a clear choice for a scalable, high available and performant database in a highly distributed cloud computing architecture.
In this session, we'll walk you through a number of patterns that enabled us to run Cassandra successfully with Docker in production. We will also share the lessons learned in running Cassandra with a very small set of resources that are applicable to both your local development environment and larger, less constrained production deployments.
We'll then introduce you to Amazon ECS, a highly scalable, high-performance service to run and manage distributed applications using Docker. Finally, we will discuss a few best practices used by our customers for running their Cassandra clusters on ECS.
