DataStax OpsCenter Product Capabilities
Manage Complex Workloads – from Anywhere
Streamline the administration of real-time, analytic and search workloads across your data management ecosystem. With just a few clicks, you can monitor and manage nodes running real-time Apache Cassandra transactions, batch analytics and enterprise search. OpsCenter supports multiple data centers so operations staff can diagnose and monitor their systems on premise, across multiple data centers or in the cloud.
Automated Management and Diagnostics at Your Fingertips
Monitor the performance of all nodes in a cluster over time and generate diagnostic reports at the push of a button. OpsCenter allows you to ascertain instantly the health and efficiency of any managed cluster and perform capacity planning with historical trend analysis and forecasting. Automatic management services including transparent repair operations enable IT departments to easily maintain a cluster’s data distribution and ensure each node is up to date.
Create Custom Performance Views
Give operators the power to create customized performance views on a wide variety of database performance and operating system metrics. With OpsCenter, you can point-and-click to create graphical displays of performance metrics in real-time and drill down into each cluster for further detail. OpsCenter automatically captures and stores metrics for historical trend analysis over time.
Rebalance and Repair Clusters in a Snap
Rebalance clusters automatically and in seconds. Adding new nodes to a Cassandra or DataStax Enterprise cluster often requires data to be rebalanced across the cluster, a sometimes difficult and time-consuming manual task. With OpsCenter, simply pull up the cluster you want to rebalance click on the ‘Rebalance Cluster’ button; OpsCenter does the rest.
View Many Operations at Once with a Centralized Dashboard
Empower your administrator to view operations on single nodes and perform bulk operations across many nodes at once. OpsCenter enables administrators to view a distributed data center from a centralized dashboard with the ability to drill-through into details. Comprehensive management and configuration tools lets admins manage maintenance activities and perform tasks such as backups and restores, using a visual interface.
Rest Easy with Proactive Alerts and Notifications
Know of problems before they occur with proactive alerts. Alerts based on performance thresholds within OpsCenter notify administrators about situations needing immediate attention without a web browser. Additionally, alerts based on user-defined statistical thresholds appear on the global dashboard when the threshold is violated.
Certified to Support 1000-node Clusters
A single installation of OpsCenter supports up to 1000-node Cassandra/DataStax Enterprise cluster deployments.
Built-in Security with Granular Control
Create users and assign roles to each user for managing database clusters, all from the same interface. User roles can be configured to perform only certain operations or several. Granular security controls empowers admins to flexibly assign roles with limited access to internal users.
Best Practice Enforcement with Expert Advice
OpsCenter’s best practice service comes bundled with a set of expert rules to ensure proper cluster setup and optimization. Scheduled scans of clusters ensure adherence to best practices with notifications and expert corrective advice being supplied in the user interface or via text/email alerts.

“With Cassandra, we get better business agility, and we don’t have to plan capacity in advance, we don’t need to ask permission of other people to build things for us, and we don’t worry about running out of space or power.”
