Subject Re: Migrating from mySQL to Cassandra
Date Mon, 04 Mar 2013 11:08:12 GMT

A quick question for you - I am completely new to noSQL databases and the architecture of
Cassandra. So, I'm still way down the learning curve.

I downloaded and installed the OpsCenter last night, but I first need to configure it. I want
to install 2 nodes on my laptop and then start building some code around it to move my DB
from mySQL. I've had a look at the DataStax website for some info on the very basics - setting
up nodes, configuration etc, but couldn't see anything. Is there anything there that you can
point me at? Or alternatively, any other sites that provide a good overview with examples?

I see that Jonathan Ellis is in London Wednesday at the Cassandra group's talk so will try
to drop by and say hello.

Cassandra client is the easiest option.  Using multiple threads or processes can make this
pretty quick.
