ApsaraDB for Cassandra

A database engine fully compatible with Apache Cassandra with enterprise-level SLA assurance.

A Fully Managed Cassandra Database Engine

ApsaraDB for Cassandra adopts a distributed, masterless architecture that is built for scaling and offers continuous uptime, always-online support. The database engine supports both long and wide tables with tens of thousands of columns, and provides flexible schema capabilities. For instance, a single database cluster can be expanded to several petabytes of storage and can support tens of millions of read and write operations. This database service also provides several enterprise-level capabilities, including cross-data center disaster recovery, backup recovery, built-in security, and several intuitive and easy-to-use monitoring and management tools.

ApsaraDB for Cassandra is designed to help resolve the challenges often encountered when building a Cassandra database for a production environment.

Large Initial Investment and High Access Costs

Deploying a Cassandra database system offline can be costly, with much time, energy, and resources needed to cover the costs of setting up and maintaining the underlying infrastructure associated with the deployment.

System Instability and No SLA Guarantee

With offline and custom deployments, the availability and reliability of your Cassandra database is not guranteed. You have to be completely responsible for the operations and maintenance costs of your database system.

Complex Operations and Maintenance

With offline and custom deployments, there are no service-based solutions for fault repairs, cluster node maintenance, database scaling, or backup and recovery operations. Moreover, many of these operations must be completed manually, which is not only cumbersome but may also cause errors to occur.
