DataStax recently released code for an Apache Cassandra Kubernetes operator, according to a press release on the company’s website. The Kubernetes Operator for Apache Cassandra will, according to the provider: “help enterprises and users succeed with scale-out, cloud-native data.” DataStax is making the Kubernetes operator available via open-source and in partnership with the community. The Kubernetes Operator for Apache Cassandra is now available.
DataStax offers a distributed hybrid cloud database built on Apache Cassandra. The company’s flagship product is DataStax Enterprise, a solution that makes it easy for enterprise to exploit hybrid and multi-cloud environments via a data layer that eliminates complexity associated with deploying applications across multiple on-prem data centers or multiple public clouds. Its enterprise data layer eliminates data silos and cloud vendor lock-in and powers mission-critical applications.
This new operator is used in DataStax Astra, the company’s database-as-a-service offering. Major benefits of a Kubernetes operator for Cassandra are zero downtime, no lock-in, and up-to global scale. This news comes on the heels of DataStax’s recent acquisition of The Last Pickle, an Apache Cassandra consulting services company.
