Astra Serverless

Serverless Apache Cassandra™

Scale database resources in and out on demand to match application requirements and traffic so that you pay only for what you use. Put the power of Cassandra in the hands of every developer without ever worrying about managing the infrastructure.

lower-costs

Lower Your Costs

Stop sizing for peak or average workloads! Pay as you go, based on usage or lock in savings with a commitment. Get the power of a serverless Cassandra in your budget.
elastic-scaling

Elastic

Auto scale based on traffic and application requirements. Compute and storage are separated enabling apps to scale infinitely or scale down to zero automatically.
Deploy Faster

Simplify Operations

Deploy faster by avoiding infrastructure configuration changes. Eliminate the guesswork on storage and compute needs of future applications.

Global Scale

Put your data where you need it without compromising performance, availability or accessibility

  • Data replication across multiple data centers, availability zones, and multi-region
  • Scale-up to petabytes of data without impacting performance
  • Resilient and highly available, minimize downtime, eliminate Site Reliability Engineering

Astra, like Cassandra, enables reads and writes to multiple cloud regions. Some say it’s the worldliest database around.

Enterprise Security

Enterprise Security

Astra is built securely from the ground up

  • All data is encrypted at rest and in motion
  • Sophisticated authentication and authorization with role based access
  • Client connections use two-way certificate validation for VPN-level security from client to database
  • Private connectivity options like VPC peering upon request
  • JSON web token(JWT) based authentication to ensure secure connectivity to your Astra database

To learn more about Astra Security read our DataStax Astra Architecture and Security Overview Whitepaper.

No Operations

Eliminate the overhead to install, operate, and scale Cassandra

  • Fully managed database and OS updates and upgrades
  • IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) failures handled gracefully by K8s operator to keep databases healthy
  • Eliminate anti-entropy repair procedures
  • Auto scaling eliminates manual configuration changes and guesswork on database sizing
  • Snapshot backups every four hours
No Operations
Stargate APIs

Stargate APIs

Use powerful APIs that you already know to query DataStax Astra

  • Create modern data applications without a schema using the Document API
  • Eliminate drivers and reduce the need to learn CQL by exchanging data with easy-to-use APIs
  • Drive adoption of cloud-native architectures using a microservices and API first approach

Zero Lock-In

  • Deploy on AWS, GCP and Azure and maintain compatibility with open-source Cassandra

  • Retain data sovereignty to meet country-specific regulations

  • Bulk data loading and integrated stream processing ensure data portability

  • API compatibility and consistent developer tools with Apache Cassandra

Relational Indexes

Relational Indexes

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

Forget denormalizing! Create any table you want. Write to just that table, and query it any way you want. Queries are no longer restricted by your primary key!

SAI
SAI

Once you create your table, just use CREATE CUSTOM INDEX ... USING 'StorageAttachedIndex' DDL commands to define one or more SAI indexes on the table.

Once the index has been created, it is simply a matter of querying the table and specifying the SAI-indexed columns.
