New CDC For Datastax Astra DB Streams Real-Time Operational Data Across an Enterprise Data Ecosystem

DataStax has unveiled change data capture (CDC) for Astra DB, a new capability for its multi-cloud database built on Apache Cassandra. The new CDC for Astra DB is powered by advanced streaming technology built on Apache Pulsar, and processes and delivers database changes in real time via event streams, making real-time data available for use across data lakes, data warehouses, search, AI, and machine learning.

According to DataStax, the integration of event streaming with the high-scale, high-performance Astra DB multi-cloud database enables organizations to create smarter and more reactive applications fueled by connected, real-time data. With CDC for Astra DB, organizations can now standardize on Astra DB, and any changes to the database are processed and delivered in real time to other parts of the data ecosystem with no trade-offs between speed, scale, and availability.

The integration enables companies to activate their real-time data to derive incremental business value from areas including e-commerce, fraud detection, customer experience, sales and inventory and transportation and logistics.
