Hi. I'm Amit Parikh, and I'm the Cassandra subject matter expert for performance monitoring at Quest Software. Cassandra usage is exploding in the industry. Chances are, your organization is already running Cassandra, or at least considering its use in future application development. Non-relational database systems, such as Cassandra, bring significant advantages to their users. However, it could be a struggle to incorporate Cassandra alongside a company's existing deployment of relational databases.
We understand that this is a huge challenge for enterprise DBAs. While Cassandra has some similarities with traditional relational databases, the way that availability, performance, and capacity are managed is unique. Cassandra's distributed architecture, with a multitude of nodes containing data with various replication factors and consistency levels, only adds to the complexity of ensuring a highly available and well-performing environment. Companies that do not have an efficient way of managing Cassandra often struggle to realize the benefits that this platform can provide them.
What if you could proactively manage the health of your Cassandra infrastructure? What if you could have deep insight into the distributed Cassandra architecture and know immediately if your cluster is out of balance or assess issues related to latency, volume, and data consolidation for key spaces and tables at the cluster and node level? What if you could also efficiently share all your findings with those that require information-- developers, administrators, and management-- through a set of customizable dashboards and reports?
