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.
Cassandra can service your reads and writes with millisecond latency. It can be scaled up to improve performance in a near linear fashion.
With linear and horizontal scale, Cassandra clusters can be easily scaled up and down as demand dictates with zero downtime.
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.

DIGITALIS CASSANDRA USE CASES
BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES
Making financial data available for mobile and web consumers in real-time and 24×7 is becoming the digital standard in banking and financial systems, such as mobile banking and Open Banking API. Cassandra is the perfect tool for providing a highly available and secure database. Digitalis supports banking and financial services enterprises in adopting Cassandra to provide a secure, always on, multi-DC and performant DB to faciliate their ever increasing data demands.
Aircrafts and jet engines, vehicles, farming, smart cities, retail outlets, connected homes, logistics, utilities, factories – all generate unprecedented volumes of telemetry data that have to be captured for processing and analysis. Cassandra can ingest and store enormous amounts of data with fantastic performance and availability. Digitalis helps IoT companies implement and manage Cassandra to meet their data demands and provide an always-on and highly performant database.
ADVERTISING, RECCOMENDATIONS AND ANALYTICS
Cassandra is a fantastic choice of database for advertising, reccomendations and analytics use cases. With significant volumes of data to be ingested and analysed, downtime and performance issues can have a significant financial impact on businesses in this space. Digitalis experts can help enterprises adopt and leverage this technology – providing a highly performant database with no downtime.
SECURITY AND FRAUD DETECTION
Complexity of digital crime is only increasing and it devastates individual victims of fraud as well as causing reputational damage and huge financial impact to enterprises. Apache Cassandra can cope with the enormous amount of data that has to be ingested, stored and queried to enable security systems to react in real time and understand what happened. Digitalis experts works with our customers to implement security solutions using Apache Cassandra.
Cassandra powers many online stores, presenting products and recommendations based on each user’s profile that has been assembled by analysing previous purchases and website interactions. Cassandra can capture activities and present highly personalised products and recommendations to the users online in the time it takes to load a webpage. Digitalis knows how to tune and deploy Cassandra so that these interactions can be captured, analysed and presented to users.
MESSAGING AND NOTIFICATIONS
Apache Cassandra underpins some of largest messaging and notification platforms in the world. Technology companies like Apple, Netflix and Uber use Cassandra to allow them to interact with their users and their users to interact with each other. Digitalis has experience with messaging solutions using Cassandra across multiple sectors including banking, social media, and many other industries.
Storing messages, posts, and sharing activity from a large volume of users in real time is a challenge for most databases. Making that data and insights immediately available to other users poses massive challenges. Cassandra is frequently the database of choice for social media use cases and Digitalis has extensive experience in helping social media companies leverage this technology.
Due to its highly available nature, multi-region/datacenter deployment and performance Cassandra is the standard database of choice for many online entertainment services such as gaming and media streaming. Digitalis can help companies in this sector to build and deploy their Cassandra clusters in the most efficient way possible to ensure there is no downtime and it is performing as expected.

CTO at Blis, location-powered advertising & analytics
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.
