Cassandra Made Easy in the Cloud


Cassandra with Storage Attached Indexing

Unlock new levels of indexing capabilities that were never before possible in Cassandra with Storage Attached Indexing (SAI). Highly scalable, globally-distributed index for Cassandra, now available on Astra.

Build Data-Rich Applications

Use familiar query patterns without compromising downtime, scale, or lock-in.

Operate at Global Scale

Reduce operations, failure points, and data duplication with scaling or backup/restore.

Reduce Architectural Complexity

Reduce architecture complexity and TCO by increasing workloads for Cassandra.

"Astra is hands-down the best solution for Cassandra developer productivity. It eliminates all of the overhead involved in setting up Cassandra. With Astra, developers can fully automate their CI/CD pipelines for Cassandra support. This means they can concentrate on more important tasks."

"At a time when data limits are being tested, every business needs to be a digital business. That means your infrastructure needs to be solid," says Dipak Chandan, senior engineering manager at Venmo. "We already use Cassandra for the reliability and resilience to handle big workloads with zero downtime. The promise of Astra is a true Cassandra-as-a-Service with no-ops. This will help developers work more efficiently so they can spend more time innovating."
