Aiven Cassandra is now generally available


Aiven’s mission is to deliver the best Open Source database and messaging systems as easily consumable managed services to help organizations focus on their core application building efforts. We’re excited to launch Cassandra as a Service as our seventh Aiven product as a continuation of that aim.

Aiven Cassandra is ideal for use cases with large, active data sets that need to be queried in real-time or used for later analysis. For instance, it can be used for IoT applications as well as a data archive for later analysis.

Offering standard plan sizes that can scale to 9-node clusters supported by custom plans for even greater workloads, Aiven Cassandra users will be able to address heavy workloads that require tunable performance and consistency.

Building a data archicture with Aiven

Not only are we one of the few providers of managed Cassandra, but we are the only provider that offers it in combination with 6 other complimentary, open-source services across six cloud platforms in over 70 regions across the world.

Cassandra also represents the next logical step towards Aiven’s goal of operating as the platform on top of which SMBs and enterprises build their data architectures. For example, let’s look at a typical modern data architecture:

Now, let’s look at where Aiven services fit within that architecture:

Wrapping up

Aiven Cassandra as a Service ensures that the underlying database systems fundamental to a data architecture can be deployed from Aiven. And, we aren’t finished. We’ll continue to refine our services and integrations.
