Secondary Indexes in Cassandra usually are a wide topic for discussion. Regarding the benefits it can bring in terms of providing a better view and sorting for data, sometimes you shall handle performance issues.
Several strategies have been presented, and in 2015 Apple open sourced its implementation for Secondary Indexes, called SSTableAttachedSecondaryIndex, or just SASI (Github - https://github.com/xedin/sasi ). The main goal of this talk is to show the benefits of this implementation and how it could be used to reduce performance issues. Also, a step-by-step on the implementation will be provided, explaining the insights behind the adopted data-structures and project general architecture.
