Although Apache Cassandra is designed for reliability and high scalability, it is also dependent on the limitations and performance hiccups associated with traditional Java Virtual Machines (JVMs).
Typical issues include response time outliers, frequent Java garbage collections, out of memory errors and system hangs. Organizations that deploy Cassandra spend considerable time tweaking and tuning the JVM to address these issues, and then need to re-tune each time load changes.
There is a way to avoid these performance issues, and have Cassandra run smoothly, free of glitches and hangs, and remove garbage collection as an item that needs to be addressed on an ongoing basis.
