Re: [EXTERNAL] Is Apache Cassandra supports Data at rest

Just because Cassandra doesn't do it doesn't mean you aren't able to encrypt your data at rest, and you definitely don't need DSE to do it.  I recommend checking out the LUKS project.  

This, IMO, is a better option than having the database do it since with this you are able to encrypt everything.  Your logs, indexes, etc.

I think you are asking about *encryption* at rest. To my knowledge, open source Cassandra does not support this natively. There are options, like encrypting the data in the application before it gets to Cassandra. Some companies offer other solutions. IMO, if you need the increased security, it is worth using something like DataStax Enterprise.

Does Apache Cassandra supports data at rest, because datastax Cassandra supports it. Can anybody help me.
