Apache Cassandra provides partition tolerance via its decentralized design and allows for configuration between either consistency and availability. This is why Cassandra is said to support tunable consistency. In this course, learn how Cassandra organizes tables into keyspaces and how to specify the replication strategy and factor at the keyspace level. Next, practice configuring various read and write consistency levels and explore the trade-offs between consistency and availability. Finally, discover how to run various CQL queries to create tables, insert or update data, and query data. Upon completion, you'll be able to configure tunable consistency in Cassandra, configure different replication strategies, and create and use tables.
