Benefits of Managed Cassandra as a Service

Apache Cassandra is the world’s leading NoSQL database. Serving billions of customers daily, it is a key element in the success of many global enterprises and services.

Instaclustr makes the power of Cassandra easy to consume. We customize and optimize the configuration of your cluster so that you can receive all the benefits of our fully managed and hosted Cassandra service on AWS, Azure, GCP, DigitalOcean, IBM Cloud, or in your private data center.

Cassandra is proven to scale from small clusters all the way through to servicing the needs of hyperscale companies with billions of customers.

With Instaclustr, you can easily take advantage of this to scale the capacity of your cluster up as you grow, or to handle bursting workloads.

Scaling goes both ways: we’ve helped customers scale down to reduce costs.

Low Latency

Apache Cassandra is highly performant and delivers low-latency responses for your workloads.

We have optimized the configuration of Cassandra for our supported environments so you can efficiently achieve low latency and high throughput.

Zero-Downtime Migrations

Cassandra, by design, provides continuous availability. We use that to offer our customers zero-downtime migrations.

Optimized Configuration

Our Cassandra configurations are tuned for reliability, performance, and security based years of experience operating tens of millions of node hours for customers in every sector.

We offer optimal instance types and configurations on each cloud.

Automated Health Checks

Cassandra performs best when you use it intelligently.

Our system monitors your schema and Cassandra usage and reports findings on a health check page to help you apply best practice usage of Cassandra.

Simple Provisioning

Cassandra’s masterless cluster architecture allows it to scale massively.

With Instaclustr, you don’t have to think about any of the tricky cluster configurations. We have done all the hard work so that you can spin up a production-ready cluster within minutes.

100% Open Source
