Peer cloud VPC to an Astra cluster to maintain private communication between cloud-based apps and Astra.
Astra, like Cassandra, enables reads and writes to multiple cloud regions. Some say it’s the worldliest database around.
We started evaluating HBase, MongoDB and Cassandra. In benchmarks, Cassandra was just beating the crap out of every other database we looked at. Plus, there were other reasons - such as active-active, which is why we went with Cassandra.

Storage Attached Indexes (query any column in a table)Learn More
Thinking about migrating an existing Cassandra app to Astra? Check out our pricing and plans.
When you’re ready, we’ll live migrate your app to Astra using Cloud Gate, our Live Migration Proxy.
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!
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.
