and other community activities.</em></p>

+					
+					<p>Netflix’s internal teams create easy-to-use tooling that helps streamline
user experience and incorporates best practices. It has open-sourced one of the tools, <a
target="_blank" href="https://github.com/Netflix/nf-data-explorer">Data Explorer</a>,
which provides fast, safe access to data stored in popular databases, including Apache Cassandra.

+
+					<p><a target="_blank" href="https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/CASSANDRA/CEP-10%3A+Cluster+and+Code+Simulations">CEP-10</a>
is under discussion. This is a proposal for a mechanism to evaluate whole clusters, or individual
classes, with a deterministically pseudo-random ordering of all thread and message events.
The goal will be to simulate a cluster and actions on it (or simpler unit tests) so that the
behavior is deterministic, repeatable but pseudo-random.</p>
+
+					<h4 id="added">Added</h4>
+
+					<p>Yifan Cai has noted that JMXTimer exposes its attributes in inconsistent time
units: nanos and micros. By correcting this inconsistency and using micros, we can reduce
the timer memory footprint by 50%. You can read about the details <a target="_blank" href="https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/rb0b5c2920ae7a3efb52c8a36b09a3c5e1547f8786790c5b1f4eb0f96%40%3Cdev.cassandra.apache.org%3E">here</a>.</p>
+
+					<h4 id="added">Added</h4>
+
+					<p>We are pleased to welcome Abuli Palagashvili, who was selected to participate
in Google Summer of Code (GSoC) on Apache Cassandra this year. He will be working primarily
on <a target="_blank" href="https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-16451">CASSANDRA-16451</a>.</p>
+
+					<h4 id="added">Added</h4>
+
+					<p>As the project looks to the future, we are adding a roadmap page to the new
<a href="https://cassandra.apache.org/">Apache Cassandra project website</a>.
The community is also looking towards new features, and you can take a look at the features
that developers plan to work on <a target="_blank" href="https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/r8e6eb9c855484d584d0dd2a74d60d9893c08bfc453c0321a901793b2%40%3Cdev.cassandra.apache.org%3E">here</a>.</p>

but this will be until the following points are solved:</p>
+
+					<ul>
+						<li>We have a similar set of unit tests to the one we have for COMPACT storage
for after DROP COMPACT and another set where we mix writes performed before and after DROP
COMPACT.</li>
+						<li>We solve the issues linked to the lack of primary key liveness (<a target="_blank"
href="https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-16675">CASSANDRA-16675</a>).</li>
+						<li>We have a way to prevent users from having issues with their tables by using
ALTER DROP statements.</li>
+						<li>We find a solution for <a target="_blank" href="https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-1606">CASSANDRA-1606</a>.</li>
+					</ul>
+
+					<p>The project has generated an umbrella ticket to have DROP COMPACT STORAGE out
of
+					experimental as soon as possible and allow users to be able to use it without taking
any risk.</p>

+					<h4 id="paidy">Paidy</h4>
+					
+					<p>Paidy is a financial services company that provides a cardless payment method
using only your email address and a phone number and is currently one of the largest online
payment businesses in Japan. To realize the company’s mission of creating a world to removes
barriers and embraces simplicity for conducting online payments, the company needed a robust
and scalable infrastructure for the technology platform:</p>
+
+					<p>"Our platform is designed with an event sourcing and reactive architecture,
and we need to be capable of storing the data in multiple data centers with redundancy and
high availability being critical to our services. Early on, we identified Apache Cassandra
as being the right database technology for Paidy's payment services. We also understand the
complexity of managing this type of databases to maintain the highest level of availability
and the dedication and expertise required  [...]
+					
+					<h4 id="hornet">Hornet</h4>
+					
+					<p>Hornet is a social networking community and app for the gay community with
30 million members worldwide. As the company is focused on community development, the Hornet
team knew they would have to scale up the existing messaging clusters. Hornet had implemented
Apache Cassandra previously, but its current version required an update and Hornet has found
the benefits have been significant. For example, it has been able to reduce the messaging
cluster volumes by 50% and improved the [...]
+
+					<p>"This is probably going to be the most engineering non-answer ever, which is
simply that I haven't really had to care about Cassandra since we made the changes and upgrades.
Usually, if I was getting paged in the middle of the night, it probably had something to do
with a brief Cassandra blip that was causing an increased response time. That has just gone
away completely. We are also able to accept far more users at this point, before we had to
look into doing any sort of infrast [...]
