The videos are now online from the 2015 Amazon Re:Invent Conference where I had the privilege to speak on behalf of CrowdStrike on how we were able to achieve 1 million writes per second on 60 nodes with Amazon EBS.
We put a good 3+ months into testing and benchmarking Cassandra with EBS and getting the current EBS story with their team to understand what improvements were made in regards to availability and performance since the outages of the 2011/2012 timeframe.
I’m happy to say that because of our work with EBS and DataStax, that DataStax has now given the green-light to run EBS GP2 in production with Cassandra. Get ready to save some $$!
