Multi-Region Support

Astra, like Cassandra, enables reads and writes to multiple datacenters. Each datacenter holds a copy of the database and keeps itself in sync with every other datacenter.

  • Add a new region at any time
  • US and EMEA database premiums are 15%, while APAC hourly premiums are 30%
  • Included in the premium is 1.25TB of data egress (data syncing) per month, excess data egress is charged at the following:

    • 0.03/GB for data originating in AWS US and EMEA and GCP NA
    • 0.11/GB/G for data originating from any other cloud/data center
