Two years ago we (Minds.com) made the brave decision to ditch MySQL and move to a ‘master-less’ NoSQL system that would horizontally scale up and down with traffic. I will cover what was wrong with MySQL and why chose to use Cassandra as our new database. The talk will feature: comparing MySQL schemas with a NoSQL data structures, benefits of master-less databases, lessons learnt with Cassandra, looking into the future & other services we use at Minds. The talk will be beneficial to all levels.
