Cassandra's Consistency Levels

Let's study some available consistency levels in Cassandra and also look into the mechanisms that help Cassandra to favor high availability and performance.

When Cassandra nodes communicate with clients they can specify different consistency levels, which allows them to optimize for consistency, availability, or latency accordingly.

The client can define the desired read consistency level and the desired write consistency level, where each consistency level provides different guarantees.
