Cassandra™ is an open-source NoSQL database software which means it’s free to download and use. It has a huge Cassandra community where you can ask for help about your Cassandra™.
Cassandra™ can process all possible data formats including structured, semi-structured, and unstructured. It allows you to make changes to your data structure as you need.
Cassandra™ employs a peer-to-peer architecture instead of a master-slave architecture. Each node connects to other nodes and performs all database operations without the need for a master node.It is made in such a way that it can handle large volumes of data and makes sure there is no single point of failure.
Cassandra™, a NoSQL database, has introduced the CQL(Cassandra Query Langugae). It is a model similar to Structured Query Language (SQL) used in relational databases. This similarity lowers the barrier of entry for users familiar with SQL commands.
