Growing scale and cost demands

Apache Cassandra is a NoSQL database that is open-source, massively scalable, and highly performant. It can be a critical part to DevOps workflows in enterprise environments, but with all that scalability and the rapid pace of development, Cassandra storage usage can rapidly grow, creating challenges both in terms of cost and in operational performance. Challenges can also crop up in the form of cloning requirements for the DevOps process, which require copies of the database to be available for analytics and tests while the main production copy is still in use, all while ensuring uptime.


Flexible data management features

Deploying the Apache Cassandra NoSQL database on NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP lets you scale easily, while maintaining peak Cassandra performance, uptime, and reducing Cassandra storage costs by as much as 70%.
