Amazon Managed Apache Cassandra Service (MCS), a scalable, highly available, and managed Apache Cassandra–compatible database service, now enables you to optimize the price of throughput for predictable workloads by using provisioned capacity mode.  

With provisioned capacity mode, you can optimize the price of throughput for your predictable workloads by specifying in advance how much read and write capacity you want to provision to your tables. As your application’s traffic changes, you can adjust how much throughput capacity is provisioned to its tables by using the AWS Management Console or with a few lines of Cassandra Query Language (CQL) code.  

Amazon MCS is available in preview in the US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), EU (Stockholm), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), and Asia Pacific (Singapore) Regions.
