This Kubernetes operator automates the Cassandra operations such as deploying a new rack aware cluster, adding/removing nodes, configuring the C* and JVM parameters, upgrading JVM and C* versions, and many more...
CassKop, the Cassandra Kubernetes operator makes it easy to run Apache Cassandra on Kubernetes. Apache Cassandra is a popular, free, open-source, distributed wide column store, NoSQL database management system. The operator allows to easily create and manage racks and data centers aware Cassandra clusters.
CassKop is based on CoreOS operator-sdk tools and APIs.
NOTE: This is an alpha-status project. We do regular tests on the code and functionality, but we can not assure a production-ready stability at this time. Our goal is to make it run in production as quickly as possible.
CassKop creates/configures/manages Cassandra clusters atop Kubernetes and is by default space-scoped which means that : - CassKop is able to manage X Cassandra clusters in one Kubernetes namespace. - You need X instances of CassKop to manage Y Cassandra clusters in X different namespaces (1 instance of CassKop per namespace).
This adds security between namespaces with a better isolation, and less work for each operator.
For detailed installation instructions, see the Casskop Documentation Page.
The documentation of the Casskop operator project is available at the Casskop Documentation Page.
The Cassandra operator image is automatically built and stored on Docker Hub
Casskop uses standard Cassandra image (tested up to Version 3.11)
CassKop is build using operator SDK:
We uses CircleCI as our CI tool to build and test the operator.
To accelerate build phases we have created a custom build-image used by the CircleCI pipeline:

Operator SDK is part of the operator framework provided by RedHat & CoreOS. The goal is to provide high-level abstractions that simplifies creating Kubernetes operators.
The quick start guide walks through the process of building the Cassandra operator using the SDK CLI, setting up the RBAC, deploying the operator and creating a Cassandra cluster.
