DataStax Announces Availability of the K8ssandra Open Source Data Platform for Kubernetes on VMware Marketplace

DataStax announced that K8ssandra, an open-source distribution of Apache Cassandra on Kubernetes, is available on the VMware Marketplace.

VMware Marketplace enables customers to discover and deploy compatible, validated third-party solutions to VMware environments. Once validated, partners can easily publish their solutions for VMware customers across platforms. Customers will be able to access these third-party partner solutions directly from their cloud environments, while also being able to experience the convenience of features such as notifications, reporting, and analytics.

Every element of a modern data application should embody the cloud native principles of scale, elasticity, self-healing, and observability. K8ssandra is at the forefront of the move to cloud native data on Kubernetes. K8ssandra combines the flexible, cloud-native benefits of Kubernetes together with the global scale of Cassandra - the NoSQL database used by leading enterprises including Apple, Instagram, Netflix, Sky, Spotify, TikTok, Uber, and Yelp. It is a complete operational data platform for Kubernetes including APIs, monitoring, and backups, providing database administrators (DBAs) and site reliability engineers (SREs) elastic scale for data on Kubernetes.

"We are thrilled to see K8ssandra on the VMware Marketplace. It is an example of the ongoing collaboration between DataStax and VMware. K8ssandra brings data to the edge to reduce latency and provide inherent high availability with the most scalable and stable multi-cloud database, all with a universal control plane for full operational lifecycle management in a single platform," said Joshua Norrid, senior technical director of value engineering for DataStax.

"We believe Kubernetes and VMware Tanzu represent an ideal way to modernize and operate applications and data workloads. DataStax, K8ssandra and the Apache Cassandra project enable developers and enterprises to seamlessly and efficiently run their Cassandra workloads on VMware Tanzu at enterprise scale alongside the entire suite of VMware Tanzu Data services," said Jacque Istok, VP Data, VMware Tanzu.
