Features and Capabilities
We provide an application console that provides access and visualization of over 1,000 performance metrics that we collect from the nodes within your cluster.
Through our application dashboard our customers can the following core activities:
- Cloud orchestration. We deploy and manage all the underlying cloud resources required to support your cluster.
- Cluster provisioning. We automate the installation of Apache Cassandra and all required software components so that you have a production ready cluster within minutes.
- Security and configuration. We deploy default security and configuration parameters to ensure that your cluster is in an initial secure and performance tuned state.
Add-ons. At this point you can elect to include additional open source data management technologies including
Apache Spark and Apache Zeppelin.
- Monitoring & alerting. You can use our dashboard and metrics to monitor the health of your cluster.
Adding, removing and replacing nodes. Nodes can be added, removed or replaced at the click of a button. All significant scaling operations are managed by our technical operations team so there is no impact on cluster performance.
24/7 Expert Support
Our team of dedicated technical operations experts are at the ready all the time – 24/7.
Our support team is simply the best in the world. Try us and you will see the Instaclustr difference.
Multi-Region & Multi-Cloud Replication
Instaclustr also automates adding additional regions and data centers to your cluster so you can achieve geographical redundancy at the click of a button.
Multi-cloud and hybrid clusters
Our system supports hybrid and multi-cloud clusters for applications that require systemic redundancy.
Back Ups & Restoration
We schedule offnode backups of all data on a daily basis and these are available for restoration in the event of a significant disaster in your cluster.
Dial up or down the processing capacity of your cluster in minutes rather than adding or removing nodes over days.
Our customers can achieve a tenfold improvement in cluster throughput in under 90 minutes by scaling with Instaclustr. This process can be reversed in the same amount of time to dramatically reduce your infrastructure costs.
Our team is aware of the status of every single node in every cluster we manage. We constantly maintain the health and all nodes and clusters to ensure that problems don’t appear in the future.
Advanced Monitoring & Alerting
We collect and monitor over one thousand different metrics from every node we manage. That lets us know exactly what the availability and performance of your cluster is at any time.
Inbuilt Deployment Security
Security and configuration
We deploy default security and configuration parameters to ensure that your cluster is in an initial secure and performance tuned state.
Networking and access control
Our system allows you to connect to the cluster in multiple different ways including Public IP and VPC peering, all secured by username/password authentication on top of TLS secured client certificate authentication and encryption.
SOC 2 Standards
We are the first hosted Cassandra service provider to meet the SOC2 standards.
