Apache Cassandra

The de facto standard database for low latency, scale, throughput and resilience

Why choose Apache Cassandra?

Apache Cassandra is the most popular distributed database when it comes to scale, resiliency and performance. Cassandra is ideal for businesses with high data volumes that have to be dealt with quickly, reliably and at scale.

Performance

Cassandra can service your reads and writes with millisecond latency. It can be scaled up to improve performance in a near linear fashion.

Scale

With linear and horizontal scale, Cassandra clusters can be easily scaled up and down as demand dictates with zero downtime.

Availability

Cassandra can tolerate the loss of servers, racks, networks and datacentres and keep serving requests. If you need a platform with zero downtime, Cassandra is one of the best databases you can choose.

Fully Managed Apache Cassandra Service

Apache Cassandra is a database that has been designed from the ground up to provide high availability and scalability yet still provide impressive performance. Its linear scalability and tolerance to infrastructure failure is a key reason why it is one of the most popular NoSQL databases for mission-critical systems where 100% uptime is required. Its architecture and design means it consistently outperforms other NoSQL databases.

Aaron McKee

CTO at Blis, location-powered advertising & analytics
The team at Digitalis have been amazing allies in our management and optimization of our high-throughput, low-latency Cassandra infrastructure.

Blis is the global leader in location-based data, analytics, and advertising. We help brands such as McDonalds, Samsung, and Unilever understand and reach current and prospective customers at scale.

Our decision technology participates in over 300,000 real-time programmatic auctions a second, with a 99th percentile latencies under 10ms. Cassandra has powered each of those decisions. With such punishing performance demands and a business that values cost-efficiency, we knew we needed experts to help us get the most out of Cassandra.

Digitalis helped us turn a costly, fragile, and slower-than-necessary Cassandra deployment into a rock-solid data layer that scaled with our business. More importantly, Digitalis was always there to help ensure the system kept working optimally and to make suggestions on how to improve our infrastructure even further.

When we moved infrastructure from Amazon Web Services to Google Cloud, Digitalis was also there to make the transition effortless and smooth.

Digitalis gave us peace of mind, stability, and the ability to focus on our core technologies.

The time to start is now

We have helped numerous companies become successful with Cassandra and we can help yours too.
