On March the 26th 2012, James Cameron and his submarine craft, Deepsea Challenger, explored the depths of the ocean down to 11km under sea level at 11.329903°N 142.199305°E, an infinitesimal point on the surface of the Earth’s vast Oceans.

Continuous Delivery in depth #3

This will be the last installment in the “Continuous Delivery in depth” series. After the good and the bad, here comes the ugly. Ugly because of the amount of changes required: a pull request with 308 commits was merged adding 2932 lines, whilst removing a whooping 10112. This represented about a 75% loc reduction, obviously improving the maintainability.

Thanks to the changes proposed at CASSANDRA-8717CASSANDRA-7575 and CASSANDRA-6480, Stratio is glad to present its Lucene-based implementation of Cassandra secondary indexes as a plugin that can be attached to the Apache distribution. Before the above changes, Lucene index was distributed inside a fork of Apache Cassandra, with all the difficulties it implied, i.e. maintaining a fork. As of now, the fork is discontinued and new users should use the recently created plugin, which maintains all the features of Stratio Cassandra.

100 Stratians and counting

When we first started using Spark, we were twenty people. Twenty Stratians. We took a risk and adopted Spark very early on, but with a lot of teamwork and a lot of mistakes, we managed to create the first pure Spark platform.

We started getting more projects, and without realizing it 20 turned into 40, 40 into 60, and 60 into 100 Stratians. And we haven’t stopped growing ever since!
