Austin Apache Cassandra Users - "What's New in 4.0" + "Cloud Databases & C*"
David Gilardi- Introduction to Apache Cassandra™ + What’s New in 4.0
Apache Cassandra™ has been making a difference for applications that scale for over 10 years! If you haven’t had a chance to get to know our favorite database, this is your chance to get the basics. In this talk, we’ll go over the fundamentals, including Cassandra’s distributed architecture, data model and what it means for your application. We’ll also cover what’s coming in 4.0 in the coming year.

Jonathan Ellis- Cloud Databases & C*
If you are interested in the scalable databases that run the largest cloud applications, this talk is for you. I'll give an overview of the similarities and differences between the main cloud databases: Apache Cassandra, Amazon DynamoDB, Microsoft Azure Cosmos DB, and Google Cloud Spanner. I'll provide a comparison of expressivity, performance, and cost characteristics of these databases, including bleeding edge results from Java 11 and ZGC.
