Apache Cassandra is an open-source NoSQL database. One of it’s main features is it’s decentralized nature that gives unique fault tolerance. Having our data replicated across datacenters means our production will not suffer from the loss of one of our sites, something all sysadmins dream of (or really happy to have such setup).
In this tutorial we will install Cassandra on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 by adding the Cassandra repository, install the software, and set up all else needed to have our service up and running and easy to manage.
In this tutorial you will learn:
- How to add Cassandra repository
- How to install needed packages
- How to repair systemd unit file
- How to test Cassandra with cqlsh
