NoSQL Workbench support for Amazon Keyspaces (for Apache Cassandra) is now generally available. You can design and visualize Amazon Keyspaces data models more easily by using NoSQL Workbench, which has a point-and-click interface for creating nonrelational data models. 

Designing scalable data models is essential to building massive-scale, operational, nonrelational databases. However, designing data models can be challenging, particularly when designing data models for new applications that have data access patterns you are still developing. With NoSQL Workbench for Amazon Keyspaces, you can create new data models from scratch by defining keyspaces, tables, and columns. You also can import existing data models to adapt them for new applications, and make modifications such as adding, editing, or removing columns. You then can commit the data models to Amazon Keyspaces or Cassandra, and create the keyspaces and tables automatically.  

Using NoSQL Workbench, you also can visualize your data models to help ensure that the data models can support your application’s queries and access patterns. You can save and export data models in a variety of formats for collaboration, documentation, and presentations. 

NoSQL Workbench is free to download, and is available for Windows, macOS, and Linux. To get started, download NoSQL Workbench.
