Deploy & Setup a Cassandra 3.x Cluster on EC2

Cassandra is a Rock solid AP NoSQL database. For this blog post, I will share a simple recipe to deploy a Cassandra cluster on AWS/EC2.

There is the DataStax AMI or DSE you should consider for production workloads.  This recipe I'm sharing is for Amazon Linux(CentOS based) but you can do for Ubuntu or even in Docker if you want to.

Keep in mind this is for Development / Experimentation purpose. I'm not covering proper tunning for your workload, Compaction Strategy and Keyspace design here and you also should be doing this under multiples ASG 1 per AZ ideally. So Let's get started.



Cheers,
Diego Pacheco
