Cassandra provides support for basic datatypes which are available in almost all database systems. Apart from this, it also provides for complex collection types which can store combinations of simple data in the form of list, set, and map. Apart from this, CQL also has support for user-defined types, allowing developers to have their own datatypes which are easy to read and understand.
