At-a-Glance Cluster Management
OpsCenter supplies a centralized dashboard that allows at-a-glance management so you know exactly what requires your attention.
Point-and-Click Provisioning and Administration
OpsCenter provides visual support for creating new clusters, adding or removing capacity from existing clusters, and doing much more no matter whether the databases are housed on premise or in the cloud.
Other key management and maintenance tasks OpsCenter handles include automatically maintaining a cluster’s data consistency using Cassandra repair; push-button rebalancing of cluster data; starting, stopping, de-commissioning one or many nodes at once; and scripting all functionality found in OpsCenter from the command line via a REST API.
OpsCenter is a secured management and monitoring tool that supplies granular security mechanisms that control what your administrators and operations staff can and cannot do on database clusters.
Always On Management and Monitoring
Automatic failover is built into OpsCenter, which helps ensure that any scheduled tasks or monitoring activities continue even if a primary OpsCenter service fails.
Visual Monitoring and Tuning
Robust and customizable visual monitoring capabilities are included in OpsCenter that allow for easy problem detection and resolution. Both current and historical statistics can be visualized through OpsCenter’s dashboards, including historical trend analysis and the ability to pinpoint bottlenecks with simple point-and-click functionality.
Best Practice Advice
OpsCenter provides visual support for DSE’s Best Practice Service, allowing you to easily uncover deviations in best practices that threaten the viability of your database clusters. Expert advice is also provided to fix found issues.
Proactive help is available in OpsCenter for troubleshooting problems and planning for future needs. Proactive alerts can be configured to notify you of issues before they threaten your cluster’s viability, which allows for headless monitoring of database systems. And forecasting future capacity needs (e.g. when will I need more disk space or RAM?) is carried out with a single mouse click.
Smart Data Protection
OpsCenter delivers full backup and disaster recovery protection for database clusters by providing visual support for DSE’s Backup Service. Benefits supplied in OpsCenter with the Backup Service include:
Backing up, scheduling and restoring one or hundreds of nodes can be visually handled.
Smart backup algorithms determine when full or just parts of a database need to be backed up.
Backups to on-premise servers or the cloud that includes compression and retention policies to save storage.
Point-in-time and object-level restores.
Visual monitoring and notifications of backup and restore tasks.
Resuming of partially completed backups or restores.
Cloning of database clusters (i.e. copying one cluster to another).
