Backups & Snapshots

We schedule off-node backups of all data on a daily basis and these are available for restoration in the event of a significant disaster in your cluster.


Updates & Patch Management

Our high-availability architecture ensures continuous operations even through node upgrades and database version upgrades. We also provide continued monitoring and testing of your nodes, applying patch and security updates as required. All with zero downtime.


Health Checks & Repairs

We regularly assess the health of your cluster both through our automated systems and manual checks. Where we detect issues, we either undertake repairs (often with our automated operations tooling), or provide advice for you to address them where they relate to your application’s usage of Apache Cassandra.
