DataStax Astra DB: Designing a Serverless Cloud-Native Database-as-a-Service

This paper presents a novel microservices-based, cloud-native architecture that integrates natively with Kubernetes to bring true, safe, stateful workloads to the cloud-native age. This design enables fine-grained, elastic scalability of individual components to meet the capacity demands of modern application workloads. Major innovations in Astra DB are: (i) novel microservices-based, cloud-native architecture; (ii) multi-tenancy and fault isolation approach; and (iii) smart auto scaling design.
