Slides: https://www.slideshare.net/DataStax/t... | Time series data has long been a natural use case for Cassandra with plenty of write ups showing you how to store mock data ""at scale"". Unfortunately warnings of wide rows and examples of storing numeric-only data aren't sufficient to guide your organization through the realities of running these workloads. Instead you find yourself implementing anti patterns like rotating clusters, only to be taken in by the siren song of DTCS, your hopes dashed across the rocks of ever expanding disk utilization.

We will be taking the lessons learned at Threat Stack - a continuous security monitoring platform - about how to scale a large volume of bulky transactions totaling terabytes and petabytes on AWS, but while holding yourself to a sane budget and DBA-free operational life.

Specifics to include ""break the glass"" operational maneuvers, making DTCS function properly, data modeling, and living in a polyglot data platform.
