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.
Cassandra, by design, provides continuous availability. We use that to offer our customers zero-downtime migrations.
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.
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.
Cassandra’s masterless cluster architecture allows it to scale massively.
