Is your organization using, or considering using, Cassandra?
Cassandra is a well-known NoSQL database, maintained under the Apache Foundation and commercialized by a number of companies. However, organizations driving digital transformation and offering real-time, mission-critical services have requirements that Cassandra may not be able to satisfy, including predictable performance, high uptime and availability, and low TCO (Total Cost of Ownership).
Has your organization experienced any of these five signs?
1.    Your Cassandra clusters are growing at an unexpected rate, and you’re worried about TCO
2.    Peak loads are causing service disruptions
3.    You’ve learned to live with cascading failures
4.    Your operations team is growing disproportionately, and the cost of support is concerning
5.    Hiring dedicated Cassandra experts has become unavoidable and difficult

If so, it may be time to consider an alternative that can save you 5x or more in TCO while providing proven, unparalleled uptime and availability.
Read the White Paper titled “Five Signs You May Have Outgrown Cassandra (and What to Do About It)” to determine whether your Cassandra infrastructure is hampering your ability to be agile, to compete, and to bring new products and services to market cost-effectively.
