Enterprises and developers now have the freedom to deploy, manage, and scale Apache Cassandra in the Cloud! DataStax Astra is now available on Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure.
Built on Kubernetes, DataStax Astra provides a simple experience for Cassandra deployment and application development.
With self-service options, various learning resources, and developer-friendly APIs, Astra claims to have removed the complexity from starting up and getting up to speed on Cassandra, the “proven” NoSQL, open-source database.
Astra enables users to build, deploy and manage multi-cloud, multi-region applications with a scalable Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS).
DataStax Astra features improved operations and data modeling, lowered barriers to NoSQL adoption, and an improved developer experience for building Cassandra data models.
It also offers enhanced security and compliance with the ability to peer cloud VPC to an Astra cluster and maintain private communication between cloud-based apps and Astra.
