Instaclustr’s Managed Service for Apache Cassandra gets you up and running quickly and is the most reliable way for to run Cassandra for your application. We are so confident in the performance of our clusters that we include latency and performance guarantees in our contracted SLAs.

Certified Security with SOC 2 and PCI-DSS

Instaclustr is the first managed Apache Cassandra service provider independently certified as meeting the SOC 2 standards.  This is the standard of choice when it comes to assessing the security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of a system.

In addition, Instaclustr’s managed Apache Cassandra service is PCI-DSS when running in AWS. PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry – Data Security Standard) is a mandated standard for many financial applications and we increasingly see the PCI-DSS controls adopted as the “gold standard” in other industries where the highest standards of security are crucial.

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

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.

The Benefits of Hosted & Managed Apache Cassandra as a Service

There are many good reasons why Apple, Netflix, Uber and Spotify deploy open source Apache Cassandra for their mission-critical applications


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.

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.
