Three open source projects for use with Apache Cassandra have been released by Instaclustr. The projects are designed to make it easier to work with Cassandra alongside Kubernetes, LDAP and Kerberos.
Instaclustr is a provider of managed solutions for scalable open source technologies that operates an automated managed environment providing database, analytics, search, and messaging.
The first project is an open source Cassandra operator that overcomes some of the problems of running Cassandra on Kubernetes. While this can be simple, Kubernetes has limited recognition of database functionality and doesn't fully support storing data in-state.
An LDAP plug-in is the second tool. It is an open source LDAP authenticator plug-in that works closely with the existing CassandraAuthorizer implementation. The new plug-in lets developers use secure LDAP authentication without the need to write additional code, and to move to using the authenticator with little or no downtime. The current version provides a way to authenticate and create users based on a configured LDAP server. This implementation only provides authentication; role management must be performed through the usual Cassandra role management, CassandraAuthorizer
