Cassandra Use Case – including Performance Monitoring

For those of you using Cassandra or considering it, we’ve got another Sematext user’s Planet Cassandra case study for your reading pleasure.  In this Q&A/use case, Alain Rodriguez, main Data Architect for Teads.tv, talks about the business and technical needs that drove their decision to use Cassandra, how they are using Cassandra, how their Cassandra monitoring is done, and more.

Here’s an excerpt related to Cassandra performance monitoring that’s especially dear to our heart:

“Thanks to SPM we now have a very good view of what is happening in terms of Cassandra performance.  This kind of application is fully realized on outage or slowness issues.  With any outage we’ve had since we started using SPM, I always found the root cause have been able to fix or mitigate things.  Any downtime — even for just a few minutes — can lead to hundreds of thousands of dollars lost, plus a negative opinion of Teads by our customers and a negative impact on our image.  Today it is really worth it to invest in a good monitoring solution. I believe SPM belongs to be one of them.”
