Open-source NoSQL database management system designed to handle large amounts of data across clusters.


Apache Cassandra is a free and open-source, distributed, wide column store, NoSQL database management system designed to handle large amounts of data across clusters. Due to its resilience and failure tolerance, Cassandra is used in many digital service infrastructures across the industry and runs very well on Ampere's Cloud-Native processors. The relative results of two key performance metrics vs x86 competitive platforms are shown here in the charts:

  • Performance: Throughput measured in total Queries per second
  • Power Efficiency: More Throughput delivered per Watt.

Key Benefits

Ampere Altra Max processors deliver disruptive value for Cassandra:

  • Predictable Performance: Up to 33% Higher Throughput than x86 competition
  • Power Efficiency: Up to 47% less power consumed at comparable performance
  • Scalability: Up to 25% fewer Altra Max processors required to deliver 1 Billion Queries/s

System configurations, components, software versions, and testing environments that differ from those used in Ampere’s tests may result in different measurements than those obtained by Ampere. The system configurations and components used in our testing are detailed here
