Using Cassandra with Spark

DataStax Spark Cassandra Connector

Kindling: An Introduction to Spark with Cassandra – Part 1 (Planet Cassandra)

Notes:
Make sure you use cassandra connector compatible with spark version
Deploy jar dependencies along with packaged code to spark cluster manager.
Manually download correct version of sbt-launch.jar if the sbt compile script in the datastax-connecter distro fails (as it did for me).
Try out the Datastax Cassandra demos
