In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Apache Cassandra on a Debian 9 VPS.
Apache Cassandra is a free and open-source distributed NoSQL database management system that provides High-Availability with no single point of failure. Cassandra does not use the table model seen in MySQL, MSSQL or PostgreSQL – rather, it uses a cluster model. It is designed to handle large amounts of data across commodity hardware. It provides linear scalability by adding a new machine to it without any interruption to applications. Apache Cassandra is used by many popular organizations including Apple, NetFlix, eBay, and Easou.
Let’s begin with the installation.
