Course Overview

Cassandra is an extensively scalable database that can manage and support a large amount of unorganized data. The Apache Cassandra Certification Training educates about database operations, node operations, table operations, cluster management, performance tuning, and more. With training, you?ll be able to host a Cassandra Database on cloud and integrate it with other Apache frameworks like Kafka, Spark, Hadoop.

Course Objectives

  • Extensive knowledge of NoSQL database, including fault tolerance, fast processing, scalability, and high availability features
  • In-depth knowledge of Cassandra database architecture
  • Gain experience in Single & Multi-Node Cluster setup using Nodetool
  • Get acquainted with industry-based projects and several case studies from various niches

Career Benefits

  • Learn an extremely fast NoSQL database system
  • Grab better database administration opportunities in the market
  • Manage clusters better with Cassandra Admin operations
  • Better remunerations


  • None, but knowledge of Linux command line helps, along with RDBMS education
