You now can design and visualize Amazon Keyspaces (for Apache Cassandra) data models more easily by using NoSQL Workbench. NoSQL Workbench now provides you a point-and-click interface to create nonrelational data models for Amazon Keyspaces, a scalable, highly available, and managed Apache Cassandra–compatible database service. 

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 that are still in development. NoSQL Workbench makes it easier to design and create Amazon Keyspaces data models by providing you a point-and-click interface. You can create new data models from scratch easily by defining keyspaces, tables, and columns. You also can import existing data models and make modifications, such as adding, editing, or removing columns, to adapt the data models for new applications. 

NoSQL Workbench then enables you to commit the data models to Amazon Keyspaces or Apache Cassandra and create the keyspaces and tables automatically. Using NoSQL Workbench, you also can visualize your data models. Visualizing data models helps ensure that the data models can support your application’s queries and access patterns. Finally, you can save and export your data models in a variety of formats for collaboration, documentation, and presentations.  

NoSQL Workbench clients are available for Windows, macOS, and Linux. You can download NoSQL Workbench at no additional charge. NoSQL Workbench Amazon Keyspaces support is now available in preview. To get started, download NoSQL Workbench.
