Amazon Managed Apache Cassandra Service (MCS), a scalable, highly available, and managed Apache Cassandra–compatible database service, now enables you to label and categorize resources by using tags. 

Tags are custom key-value pair attributes that you can use to label your Amazon MCS resources, such as keyspaces and tables. Tags make it easier for you to identify, organize, and search your resources. You can use tags to categorize resources by purpose, owner, environment, or other criteria. For example, you can create tags for a cost center, team, or project. You also can see your AWS bill categorized by tags in AWS Cost Explorer to help you track costs. You can add, change, or remove tags by using the Amazon MCS console or a Cassandra Query Language (CQL) statement. Each resource can have up to 50 unique tags. 

There is no additional cost to use tags, and support for tagging is available in all AWS Regions where Amazon MCS (preview) is offered
