With completion of a rigorous and transparent certification process, enterprises can be even more confident that Instaclustr-managed Cassandra is ready for any production environment

Redwood City, California – May 9, 2019 – Instaclustr, the leading provider of fully managed solutions for scalable open source technologies, today announced the release of its certification program for open source technologies. Following a certification process across several critical variables, enterprises can build applications with even greater confidence – leveraging Instaclustr’s expertise and management supporting 100% open source deployments of technologies including Apache Cassandra, that are fully scalable, performant, optimized, and secure.

To establish a thorough and transparent certification process, Instaclustr has introduced the Instaclustr Certification Framework for Open Source Software, a rigorous testing and evaluation program that will apply to each of the open source, data-layer technologies Instaclustr supports. The managed provider has also developed a technology test plan for Cassandra, which assures that the version of the NoSQL database that Instaclustr delivers has been extensively tested across three different categories – functional, performance, and integration – for readiness in production environments.

Within this framework, functional testing provides certainty that each feature and component of the Cassandra version under test is evaluated to a consistent level. Performance testing provides increased confidence that the version will deliver stable and reliable performance, compared to previous versions. Integration testing covers testing with other ecosystem components, such as drivers or other applications – meaning that enterprises can leverage Instaclustr’s certification results as part of a seamless and congruent open source data stack.

“We understand that enterprise adoption of any core technology is a major commitment that demands absolute confidence in reliability, performance, functionality, and security,” said Ben Slater, Chief Product Officer, Instaclustr. “Enterprise decision-makers need to know that a chosen solution will behave precisely as expected, and will provide enterprise-grade effectiveness all the way through to production. Our Certified Cassandra now provides customers with even more peace of mind that 100% open source Cassandra is an ideal fit for their production applications, and that Instaclustr is the trusted partner to manage it.”

In order to provide full transparency into its testing and certification processes, Instaclustr makes all results of its open source certification freely available. The Instaclustr Certification Report for Apache Cassandra offers clear details on all testing specifics, while also giving enterprises key insights into the licensing, community, stability, and maturity advantages of deploying the certified version of the software. These insights further cover how best to leverage certified Cassandra in enterprise-grade production environments, drive digital transformation, deploy cloud-agnostic database technology in the cloud, and deploy data-layer technologies through the Instaclustr managed platform.

“Apache Cassandra is an increasingly popular database choice for enterprise applications,” says James Curtis, Senior Analyst, Data, AI, and Analytics at 451 Research. “With its managed services capabilities, Instaclustr continues to make proven open-source technologies like Cassandra more accessible to enterprise customers. Its newly launched certification program provides an additional layer of assurance for customers with enterprise-grade production deployments.”
