Discussion on: Adding Indexes To Mongo + A Case Study

I don't really have one. I did quite a lot of research about Cassandra and wanted to have data there for a project but it never worked out.

Project was supposed to be a rewrite of legacy app that had to run in multiple regions and distributed database felt like a natural choice.

Cassandra, like MongoDB had only local Indexes at that time.

Got it! For what it's worth, I was recently working on projects with ~10m records - I went with Mongo, some peers went with Cassandra. We had comparable query times (post indexing), but the set up of Cassandra was apparently a pain whereas Mongo is a breeze.

Gee! Cassandra seems like a massive overkill for 10M records. Even MongoDB does, actually.

Also ye, Cassandra requires way more thinking in terms of data modeling and setting up infrastructure, but if done correctly - pays off.
