Beta release

Update: Integrated CQLSH

On February 27, 2020, we brought the Cassandra Query Language SHell (CQLSH) even closer to you by integrating it directly in the DataStax Cloud console. Navigate to your database, click the CQL Console tab, and issue CQL commands to interact with your database.

Update: Standalone CQLSH

On January 24, 2020, the standalone version of CQLSH was released for connecting to DataStax Astra databases. What does that mean for you? It means connecting to an Astra database from your laptop without requiring DataStax Enterprise (DSE) or DataStax Distribution of Apache Cassandra™ (DDAC).

Previously, you used native CQLSH included in one of those products. Today, you can download CQLSH, download the secure connect bundle for your Astra database, and connect with a single command.

Update: Free tier

On January 7, 2020, the Free tier was released for DataStax Astra, allowing you to create an Astra database with 10 GB for free. Create a database with just a few clicks and start developing within minutes, no credit card required.

Note: You can have only one active database on the Free tier.

Open Beta

The Beta release of DataStax Astra on Google Cloud brings the ability to develop and deploy data-driven applications with a cloud-native service, built on the best distribution of Apache Cassandra™, without the hassles of database and infrastructure administration.
