When dealing with many Cassandra clusters, day-to-day operations can get complicated. At Teads, we like to eliminate toil as much as possible. In this article, we describe how we automate scaling operations on our AWS infrastructure using Terraform coupled with Chef and Rundeck.
We are heavy Cassandra users, given our current infrastructure which includes 145 production nodes and performs up to one million queries per second.
