Amazon Keyspaces (for Apache Cassandra), a scalable, highly available, and managed Apache Cassandra–compatible database service, is now generally available in the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. 

With Amazon Keyspaces, you can run your Cassandra workloads on Amazon Web Services by using the same Cassandra application code and developer tools that you use today. You don’t have to provision, patch, or manage servers, and you don’t have to install, maintain, or operate software. Amazon Keyspaces is serverless, so you pay for only the resources you use. Tables can scale up and down automatically based on actual request traffic, with virtually unlimited throughput and storage. 

Amazon Keyspaces provides you consistent, single-digit-millisecond performance at any scale. Tables are encrypted by default, and data is replicated across multiple Amazon Web Services Availability Zones for durability and high availability. You can back up your table data continuously, and recover to any point in time in the preceding 35 days to help protect against accidental writes and deletes. Amazon Keyspaces offers you a 99.99% availability service level agreement within an Amazon Web Services Region. You can manage access to your tables by using Amazon Web Services Identity and Access Management, connect your resources securely to your virtual private cloud, and keep your applications running smoothly with integrated logging and monitoring.
