DataStax and AWS: Accelerating GenAI Applications into Production

Our partnership with Amazon Web Services is all about one thing: accelerating generative AI innovation into production. Last week, we announced a new strategic collaboration agreement with AWS; for DataStax and the developers we serve, it’s far more than an incremental announcement; it’s revolutionary.

Here’s a quick overview:

Seamless integrations We've seamlessly connected with Amazon Bedrock, Amazon SageMaker, AWS Glue, and more, paving the way for our customers to craft GenAI applications at an unprecedented pace.

Cost-efficiency and performance We've unlocked the potential for significantly more cost-effective pricing without compromising on performance through the deployment of DataStax Astra DB on AWS Graviton.

Security and compliance In today's data-driven world, security and compliance are paramount to move GenAI into production fast. With Astra DB's AWS PrivateLink ServiceReady Designation and our robust secure architecture validated by PCI, SOCII, and ISO 27001 certifications, our customers can build GenAI applications with confidence.
