Live Webinar Presents Solutions to the Cassandra DevOps Challenge

Taming the Cassandra DataStax Dev/Test Challenge in Production Ecosystems Explores How to Speed Deployment Using Containers

SAN JOSE, Calif. – August 18, 2017

WHAT:  Cassandra-DataStax has a massive impact on customer facing solutions at scale. However, like most technologies, it presents unique challenges that are often first felt in the development and testing of the application. Containers, including Docker, have become a leading tool in addressing some of those challenges. However, containers alone do not solve all the difficult and time-consuming problems.

  • Simplified, repeatable and rapid cluster deployment
  • Node placement logic
  • Cluster scaling
  • Guarantee quality of service (QoS)

The audience will learn:


  • How to maintain cluster configuration during the clone process
  • How to speed up the cluster cloning process
  • Space efficiency when duplicating clusters


  • How to perform cluster snapshots
  • Point in time capabilities
  • Role of cloning in point in time operations

WHEN: Tuesday, August 22 at 10 AM PDT (1 PM EDT)
