Hassle-free Cassandra clusters management
From install command to a fully operational cluster in minutes, K8ssandra makes it trivial to install, configure, and manage a complete data platform. Native Kubernetes operators handle day-to-day operation of services.
At its core K8ssandra is powered by Apache Cassandra®, a database driving many of the most popular websites on the internet today. With a focus on availability across a suite of failure domains, the database and its data stay online.
With Cassandra’s peer-to-peer architecture at its foundation, K8ssandra allows for linear scaling alongside changes in traffic. With the addition of Stargate, operators can choose how to scale, from query processing to data capacity.
