Cassandra & The Multi-Cloud/ Ingest Data from RDBMS to Cassandra w/ StreamSets
Apache Cassandra and The Multi-Cloud by Amanda Moran
Distributed Databases and more specifically cloud-native databases were created to face many of the issues with a traditional relational database. Having a low latency and highly available database is the key to preventing a multitude of issues. This talk will focus on what distributed databases provide and why it’s important. This talk will also focus on how cloud-native databases like Apache Cassandra are the perfect match for multi-cloud architectures, and why multi-cloud is important.

"Ingest Data from Relational Databases to Cassandra with StreamSets" by Pat Patterson
So you need to migrate some data from an existing relational database (RDBMS) to Apache Cassandra™. But How? Or, how about ingesting from an RDBMS to a Kerberized DataStax cluster? What about a one-time batch load of historical data vs streaming changes? You could write and deploy some custom code, utilizing a framework like Apache Spark. Sometimes that makes sense, but often it requires significant time and resources. So what are the alternatives...? In this talk, we'll explore how you can use the open source StreamSets Data Collector for migrating from an existing RDBMS to DataStax or Apache Cassandra™.
