Cassandra on Nutanix
Configuring and deploying virtualized Cassandra implementations on Nutanix.
The Nutanix enterprise cloud software easily scales to incorporate big-data architectures and is the ideal environment for running large-scale, virtualized Cassandra workloads.
Cassandra is a distributed, wide column store, NoSQL database management system designed to handle large amounts of data across many commodity servers. Cassandra and other new database technologies can take advantage of specific Nutanix functionalities and elastic scalability to deliver both sustained high performance and the fast, easy provisioning required to scale both vertically and horizontally.
The Nutanix platform greatly simplifies the workflows for deploying and maintaining the large and often dispersed virtual server landscapes that such distributed application installs require. Using a single,intuitive GUI, administrators can add nodes to the underlying Nutanix cluster with the click of button;this capability increases the cluster-wide access to the system’s distributed storage fabric and allows you to deploy or relocate Cassandra virtual machines (VMs) anywhere across the cluster estate.
