Hi Kenneth,

Thanks for your great feedback! We're not trying to be secretive, but just
not amazing at promoting ourselves!

AxonOps was built by digitalis.io (https://digitalis.io), a company based
in the UK providing consulting and managed services for Cassandra, Kafka
and Spark. digitalis.io was founded 3 years ago by 2 ex-DataStax architects
but their experience of Cassandra predates the tenure at DataStax.

We have been looking after a lot of Cassandra clusters for our customers,
but found ourselves spending more time maintaining monitoring and
operational tools than Cassandra clusters themselves. The motivation was to
build a management platform to make our lives easier. You can read my blog
here - https://digitalis.io/blog/apache-cassandra-management-tool/

We have not yet created any videos but that's in our backlog so people can
see AxonOps in action. No testimonials yet either since the customer of the
product has been ourselves, and only just released it to the public as beta
few weeks ago. We've decided to share it for free to anybody using up to 6
nodes, as we see a lot of clusters out there within this range.

The only investment would be a minimum amount of your time to install it.
We have made the installation process as easy as possible. Hopefully you
will find it immensely quicker and easier than installing and configuring
ELK, Prometheus, Grafana, Nagios, custom backups and repair scheduling. It
has certainly made our lives easier for sure.

We are fully aware of the new features going into 4.0 and beyond. As
mentioned earlier, we built this for ourselves - a product that does
everything we want in one solution providing a single pane of glass. It's
free and we're sharing this with you.

Enjoy!

Hayato Shimizu
