Cassandra


You can use the Cassandra connector from the CData Sync application to move data from any supported source to the Cassandra destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Establish a Connection

To allow Sync to use data from Cassandra, you first must establish a connection to Cassandra. Follow these steps to connect Cassandra to your Sync account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Destinations tab and locate the Cassandra row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row. If you do not see the Configure Connection icon, you need to add the connector according to the instructions in Connections.

  5. Enter connection settings on the Settings tab:

    • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

    • Server - Enter the host name or the IP address of the server that hosts the Cassandra database. The default host name is localhost.

    • Port - Enter the port number of the server that hosts the Cassandra database. The default port value is 9042.

    • Database - Enter the name of the Cassandra keyspace that contains your tables.

    • Auth Scheme - Select the authentication scheme. The default setting is Basic.

    • User - Enter the username that you use to authenticate to the Cassandra database.

    • Password - Enter the password that you use to authenticate to the Cassandra database.

    • Use SSL - Specify whether you want to use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol. The default value is False.

    • Consistency Level - Select the number of the replicas from which you want to enforce a response before queries are considered a success.

  6. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

  7. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)
