Apache Cassandra solves the Big Data problem by partitioning data, expanding horizontally and delivering replication consistency. This presentation will explain how Cassandra's data model provides novel features like very large, sparse rows to aid high performance through denormalization, and give an example of porting a SQL schema to Cassandra.
