Cassandra Data Modelling - Tables

In this series of posts I will discuss the basic concepts of data modelling in Apache Cassandra. It is important to understand those concepts as it will help us to design an efficient system using Cassandra. In this post I will discuss basic concept called tables in Cassandra.

I am assuming that you have installed Cassandra 1.2 or above with CQL3. You can download Cassandra from Apache Cassandra website. CQL 3.0 is the language which helps to work with Cassandra object same as SQL language helps to works with SQL objects.
