About writes

Understanding how Casssandra writes and reads data, the hinted handoff feature, and areas of conformance and non-conformance to the ACID (atomic, consistent, isolated, durable) database properties.

To manage and access data in Cassandra, it is important to understand how Casssandra writes and reads data, the hinted handoff feature, areas of conformance and non-conformance to the ACID (atomic, consistent, isolated, durable) database properties. In Cassandra, consistency refers to how up-to-date and synchronized a row of data is on all of its replicas.

Cassandra includes client utilities and application programming interfaces (APIs) for developing applications for data storage and retrieval.
