This blog provides a reference to Instaclustr’s Support for Apache Cassandra and can be used to understand the version status. The table below displayed the dates that the Apache Foundation project will end support for the corresponding major version. Instaclustr will provide our customers with extended support for these versions for 12 months beyond the Apache Foundation project dates. During the extended support period Instaclustr’s support will be limited to critical fixes only.
The Apache Cassandra versions supported on Instaclustr’s Managed Platform provided in this blog are also applicable for our Support-only customers.
The Apache Cassandra project has put in an impressive effort to support these versions thus far, and we’d like to take the opportunity to thank all the contributors and maintainers of these older versions.
Our extended support is provided to enable customers to plan their migrations with confidence. We encourage those of you considering upgrades to explore the significant advantages of Cassandra 4.0 which has been in full general availability on our managed platform since September 2021.
If you have any further concerns or wish to discuss migration, please get in touch with our Support team.
