Instaclustr Managed Apache Cassandra

Low Latency

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

Zero Downtime Migrations

Cassandra, by design, provides continuous availability. That’s zero downtime, and we back this with up to 100% uptime SLAs where our customers have deployed effectively.

Dynamic Scaling

Our system can scale the processing capacity of your cluster up to 10x up or down in less than half an hour to deal with burst loads and scaling down to save costs. Talk to us about your specific environment and requirement

Monitoring and Alerting

We collect and monitor over 1000 different metrics from every node we manage, so we can proactively manage your cluster and get easy access to the Cassandra metrics needed to manage your application.

Automated Health Checks

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

You don’t have to think about any of the tricky configuration of the cluster, we have done all the hard work so that you spin up a production ready cluster within minutes.

Unparalleled Experience

With over 20 million node hours and one petabyte of data under management. We provide the most reliable way to run Cassandra in the cloud.

24/7 Technical Support

Our team of experienced Cassandra engineers are available 24x7 for operational and code-level technical help and support.

Optimised Configuration

We select instances types and configurations that are well suited to running Cassandra, then develop tuned operating systems and Cassandra configurations to take advantage of the underlying infrastructure.

What is Apache Cassandra

What is Apache Cassandra™?

Apache Cassandra is the open source distributed NoSQL database designed to handle large amounts of data across commodity servers, providing high availability with no single point of failure. It has been architected from the ground up to handle large volumes of data and transactions with zero downtime.  Cassandra is designed as a distributed system, for deployment of large numbers of nodes across multiple data centers. Key features of Cassandra’s distributed architecture are specifically tailored for multiple-data center deployment, for redundancy, for failover and disaster recovery.

Apache Cassandra Key Features


Cassandra consistently outperforms popular NoSQL alternatives in benchmarks and real applications, primarily because of fundamental architectural choices.


Some of the largest production deployments include Apple's, with over 100,000 nodes storing over 10 PB of data, Netflix (2,500 nodes, 420 TB, over 1 trillion requests per day), Chinese search engine Easou (270 nodes, 300 TB, over 800 million requests per day), and eBay (over 100 nodes, 250 TB).


Data is automatically replicated to multiple nodes for fault-tolerance. Replication across multiple data centers is supported. Failed nodes can be replaced with no downtime.

Unparalleled Experience

Instaclustr has well over 10 million node-hours of experience running Apache Cassandra. This experience is embedded into our management systems and operational processes to provide the most reliable way to run Cassandra in the cloud.

Monitoring Built-in

Our console provides immediate access to the monitoring statistics that you need to understand your cluster. These seem monitoring statistics are exposed through a REST API to allow integration into a single view of your stack.

Provisioning API

Integrated the creation and tear-down of Cassandra clusters with your CI/CD infrastructure using our provisioning API.

Dynamic Scaling

Instaclustr’s system can scale the processing capacity of your cluster to up to 10x up or down in minutes, providing capacity when needed to deal with burst loads and scaling down in the quiet times to save costs.

Optimized Configurations

Instaclustr selects instance types and configurations that are well suited to running Cassandra and then develops tuned operating system and Cassandra configurations to take advantage of the underlying infrastructure. This saves you time on tuning and money on infrastructure costs.

Zero Outage Migrations

We work with you, following a process proven over many customer migrations, to migrate your data from an existing self-managed environment to the Instaclustr environment with zero outage and continued availability throughout the process.

For all RIYOA subscriptions we charge you a service fee based on the size of your deployment for our managed services.  You are responsible for your own cloud provider infrastructure costs.

Do you offer volume discounts?

Yes. For Run-In-Your-Own Account customers you automatically gain access to volume price tiers as the size of your managed service increases.  For Run-In-Our-Account customers volume discounts may be offered on a case-by-case basis.
