DataStax OpsCenter vastly simplifies what it takes to provision and manage your big data infrastructure. Included as part of DataStax Enterprise, it allows administrators, architects and developers to manage, monitor and control even the most complex database workloads with point-and-click ease from a centralized web browser.

What’s New in DataStax OpsCenter
With the release of DataStax Enterprise 3.0, OpsCenter makes it even faster and easier to manage big data systems with new visualization capabilities, including:
- Streamlined enterprise provisioning that provides easy-to-use visual means for creating and managing new clusters in just minutes, both on-premise and in the cloud.
- Improved restore management that provides visual ways to restore a database cluster from backups (includes time-saving object-level restore).
- Enhanced object management that brings intuitive visualizations to the task of creating and managing all database objects in a cluster.
“We just started using your OpsCenter tool, which has already proven to be invaluable to us where understanding hot spots and rebalancing clusters are concerned. I hear nothing but great things back from my technical team that is using OpsCenter.”
Control your entire database infrastructure – from one place.
With DataStax OpsCenter, your operations staff can quickly and effortlessly monitor and carry out tasks on all DataStax Enterprise clusters and nodes in your database, including those running diverse real-time, analytic and search workloads. It combines everything your teams need together in a single, visually sophisticated browser-based dashboard.
See the big picture
OpsCenter helps you more easily manage your database infrastructure because it allows you to literally see everything, down to the smallest detail. It does so through a range of intuitive visualization options that show the state of all nodes in a cluster. It gives your teams an at-a-glance view of which nodes are up and down and their performance over time. It also provides comprehensive management and configuration abilities to perform all administration tasks. Additionally, your teams can create new database objects, manage maintenance activities and perform other database tasks such as backups, all in a visual manner.
Stay in control – from anywhere
OpsCenter installs seamlessly and is accessible from any web browser. Now your teams can manage everything no matter where they happen to be (in the office or remote), what device they are using (desktop, laptop, tablet), or where their databases are deployed (on premise, in multiple data centers or the cloud). Better still, because it runs in standard web browsers, it requires no additional client software.
Easily manage complex workloads – wherever your data happens to be
OpsCenter greatly streamlines the management and administration of diverse real-time, analytic and search workloads across your data management ecosystem. With just a few clicks, you can monitor and carry out tasks on nodes running real-time Apache Cassandra transactions, Apache Hadoop batch analytics (including Hadoop-related MapReduce, Pig and Hive tasks), and Apache Solr enterprise search. OpsCenter also supports the monitoring of all nodes across multiple data centers so administrators and operations staff can easily diagnose and monitor their systems no matter where they’re physically located – on premise, across multiple data centers or in the cloud.
Create custom dashboard views – fast
Using the dashboard, operators can also drill down into each cluster and customize their own performance views selected from a wide variety of database performance and operating system metrics. It provides graphical displays of performance metrics in real-time that you can access with just a click of a button. It also automatically captures and stores metrics should you wish to perform historical trend analysis over time.
Rest easy with proactive alerts and notifications
With OpsCenter, operators can define alerts based on performance thresholds and be notified even when they’re away from a computer. Alerts can be based on statistical thresholds of your choosing. When a threshold is violated, alerts appear on the global dashboard. OpsCenter is also able to send alert notifications about situations needing immediate attention to key personnel when they are not in front of a web browser.
Rebalance clusters in a snap
Adding new nodes to a Cassandra or DataStax Enterprise cluster often requires that data be rebalanced across the cluster, a sometimes difficult and time-consuming manual task. But with OpsCenter, rebalancing clusters can be done automatically and in just seconds. An operator simply pulls up the cluster they want to rebalance, clicks on the “Rebalance Cluster” button, and OpsCenter does the rest.
