  • Reference added

    The Install-Package command doesn't just install the bits!  The FluentCassandra assembly reference gets added to your .NET project as well, as shown here.

  • Code is as code does

    The code shown here is a slightly modified version of some sample code provided by Nick Berardi.  The code opens up an existing column family, adds a row to it, creates two super columns, adds columns and values into the super columns, adds the super columns as property values into the new row, attaches the row and saves all changes.

    ------------------------

    As you can see, getting the DataStax Community version of Cassandra installed and running is pretty easy.  And once DataStax is on your machine, you have a range of browser, command line and developer clients available to create and query Cassandra NoSQL databases.

  • How Do You Keep It All Up-To-Date?

    Having to run a separate GUI installer for every single package sounds like a scalability nightmare. Including your DBMS, Web server, load balancer, memory cache, scripting languages, scripting language add-ons, Web server add-ons, library dependencies ... that could easily mount up to hundreds of separate installers, which means hundreds of separate updates needing to be managed. On a Linux system, keeping it all-to-date involves little more than typing "apt-get update && apt-get upgrade".
