In a wind farm running hundreds of wind turbines, the hydraulic systems play an important part in running the turbine smoothly. Hydraulic systems optimize the turbine by controlling the blade pitch to maximize the amount of power generated under unpredictable wind conditions. Performance takes a hit, when there’s a sudden drop in pressure. In the worst case scenario, a complete loss in pressure can destroy components, resulting in significant financial losses.

We’ve been working with a distributed Cassandra cluster for almost a year. During that time, we have learned a bit about achieving scalability, and along the way we have collected some insight on achieving optimal query performance.
