I am primarily a .Net developer, working on a cloud application which utilizes ASP.Net MVC, SQL Server, Cassandra and ElasticSearch. I also work with our Linux (Ubuntu) side of things, where I get to dabble in Bash and Python.

2014/15 DataStax MVP for Apache Cassandra.

comment Do you have to run nodetool repair on every node?
@2rs2ts Yes, if you run it with -pr on every node it will cover the entire keyspace(s).

comment Date model for commenting system stored in a key-value NoSQL DB?
@AlbertLim For those UPDATEs, you should be able to encapsulate them with the BEGIN BATCH/APPLY BATCH statements. That will tell Cassandra to apply them as a single, logical operation. Check this SO answer for more info on that: stackoverflow.com/questions/26818576/…

comment Cassandra: maintenance
@2rs2ts Well, not for "forever." Once you've run a manual compaction..."yes," you'll need to keep running it periodically (we would always do it right after our weekly repair). Clarify this with a DataStax rep, but I think that if you have an event that rewrites the SSTABLE files (like upgrading when you run upgradesstables) that may reset things enough to save you from "manual compaction hell."

comment How can I get nodetool without Cassandra
@dizpers Oh, for Debian it's even easier! Just untar the file, and make sure Java is installed (and alternatives are properly updated) and it should just "work."

comment to use full text search or not?
Nice! I guess I can't argue with that. My bias comes from the fact that I have worked on a few (e-commerce) sites which used full-text search, with sub-par results.
