Amazon Keyspaces (for Apache Cassandra), a scalable, highly available, and fully managed Apache Cassandra–compatible database service, is now generally available. 

With Amazon Keyspaces, formerly known during preview as Amazon Managed Apache Cassandra Service (MCS), you can use the Cassandra Query Language (CQL) code, Apache 2.0–licensed Cassandra drivers, and developer tools you already use today. You don’t have to provision, patch, or manage servers, and you don’t have to install, maintain, or operate software. Amazon Keyspaces is serverless, so you pay for only the resources you use. Tables can scale up and down automatically based on actual request traffic, with virtually unlimited throughput and storage.  

Amazon Keyspaces provides you consistent, single-digit-millisecond performance at any scale. Tables are encrypted by default, and data is replicated across multiple AWS Availability Zones for durability and high availability. Amazon Keyspaces offers you a 99.99% availability service level agreement (SLA) within an AWS Region. You can manage access to your tables by using AWS Identity and Access Management, connect your resources securely to your virtual private cloud (VPC), and keep your applications running smoothly with integrated logging and monitoring. 

Amazon Keyspaces is available in 18 AWS Regions. For more information, see Amazon Keyspaces (for Apache Cassandra) is Now Generally Available.
