24/7 Expert Support
Customer support delivered by our specialist on-call support engineers with thousands of hours of DevOps experience with Apache Cassandra, Apache Spark and complementary technologies.
Monitoring & Alerting
Node monitoring and alerting for events of interest including performance and latency, disk capacity and node responsiveness. Customized alerting is also possible through our monitoring architecture.
Zero Outage Migrations
We work with you as part of our service to migrate your data from an existing self-managed environment to the Instaclustr managed environment with zero outage and continued availability throughout the process.
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.
