Try Cassandra with This JVM for a Flawless Experience

While working with big data, professionals often encounter the questions like which database is better. There is no specific answer to a question like this because a professional considers a lot of things when deciding the right type of technology that he or she wants to work with. The choices are sometimes a single Software and most of the times a combination that has worked well previously.

This blog is centered upon the use of Apache Cassandra with Zing. Now, Cassandra is a database management system (DBMS) established upon NoSQL. It has some unique features that can alleviate your routine data management experience. Zing on the other hand is a JVM designed to deliver high performance. Let’s look at the ways in which this combination can accelerate performance of your systems.

Is Your Big Data Vulnerable?

The year 2017 started on a dramatic Hollywood-style note for a few database-service providers. In a series of events, some database became victim of ransomware. This raised questions about the security of cloud-based databases which has been the biggest drawback of cloud so far.

In this case, the data was deleted from the cluster and a message asking for ransom was left behind. Experts are working on establishing whether this is an isolated event or is it related to the MongoDB attack.

Hadoop and CouchDB Instances

When Hadoop and CouchDB started facing similar issues where data was deleted from the instances, the first thought that crossed many people’s mind was that these have also been hit by ransomware. But, the reality came out to be different than thought. The hackers targeting Hadoop ...
