Microsoft Releases Azure IoT Hub Connector To Cassandra

Microsoft has released a new open source project to enable devices which are connected to Azure IoT Hub to store data in a Cassandra database. The code is now available on GitHub.
 
With the help of this new Cassandra connector, developers will now be able to easily build solutions which harness IoT scale fleets of devices and storage data from them in Cassandra tables for later analysis.
 
Microsoft states that the library can also be completely customized when and if required. Developers will be able to define the schema of Cassandra tables as well as specify the way in which data can be stored, whether it is based on the type of the message or by splitting the incoming data into multiple tablets for simpler analysis.
 
Additionally, Microsoft has also released a Docker container so as to enable the deployment and testing of the new library to be completed within a few minutes.
