The Last Pickle is very pleased to announce that version 4.0 of tlp-stress for Apache Cassandra has been released.
Several new observability features will be part of the next major Apache Cassandra 4.0 release. We covered virtual tables in an earlier blog post and now would like to give a preview of another new feature, Diagnostic Events, which provide real time insight into your Cassandra internals.
Cassandra Reaper 2.0 was released a few days ago, bringing the (long awaited) sidecar mode along with a refreshed UI. It also features support for Apache Cassandra 4.0, diagnostic events and thanks to our new committer, Saleil Bhat, Postgres can now be used for all distributed modes of Reaper deployments, including sidecar.
Spotify and The Last Pickle (TLP) have collaborated over the past year to build Medusa, a backup and restore system for Apache Cassandra which is now fully open sourced under the Apache License 2.0.
