Using CMS with Cassandra

Important
To ensure strong consistency of the data (no matter the configuration of the underlying storage) it was decided to deprecate Cassandra 2.2.x support in 8.5.3 release of the product. Going forward, support of Cassandra will be discontinued in 9.0 release of the product.
Important
This step is required in case Cassandra 2.2.x is planned to be used as the storage. If you need guidance deploying Cassandra cluster, please refer to Deploying Cassandra Cluster. Detailed Cassandra documentation can be found on the Cassandra website.
If you are using another data source as the CMS Repository, go directly to Install the CMS.
