In Apache Cassandra Lunch #29: Cassandra & Kubernetes Update, we cover updates regarding Cassandra and Kubernetes after the recent KubeCon event. We cover DataStax’s Cass-Operator updates, Orange Telecom’s CassKop updates, and a new project called K8ssandra. As mentioned above, a more in-depth discussion is available in the embedded YouTube video below, so don’t forget to watch that in conjunction with this blog.

K8ssandra provides a production-ready platform for running Apache Cassandra on Kubernetes. This includes automation for operational tasks such as repairs, backups, and monitoring.
K8ssandra is a cloud native distribution of Apache Cassandra meant to run on Kubernetes.
At a pure component level, K8ssandra integrates and packages together
Apache Cassandra 3.11.7
Kubernetes Operator for Apache Cassandra (cass-operator)
Reaper, also known as the Repair Web Interface
Medusa for backup and restore
Metrics Collector, with Prometheus integration, and visualization via preconfigured Grafana dashboards
Templates for connections into your Kubernetes environment via Ingress solutions such as Traefik
Right now K8ssandra is deployed as an entire stack. It currently assumes your deployment uses the entire stack. Trading out certain components for others is not supported.
