MariaDB Cassandra Interoperability

New Features
23 April 1:20pm - 2:10pm @ Ballroom D

The Cassandra Storage Engine allows access to data in a Cassandra cluster from MariaDB. Learn:
* How to make use of it
* When to use it, and if CQL makes sense
* Data & command mapping
* Use cases
* Future plans

And more. This will benefit MySQL users as well, since this is just a storage engine using the storage engine interface.
