Title: Astra: How We Built A Cassandra-as-a-Service

At DataStax, we’ve been on a multi-year journey to bring a Cassandra DBaaS to the market, culminating in the GA of Astra in May 2020. In this talk, we’ll share our successes and failures through the iterative journey to GA, our current Kubernetes based architecture, how we built scalability and reliability into the platform, and how Cassandra’s architecture and implementation affected our design choices for current features like multi-tenancy and influences our future initiatives.
