We show the creation and management of a Cassandra cluster, running across multiple availability zones and clouds. Best practices for application deployment in the cloud can be complex. Users want to use different cloud providers and APIs, and to run applications wide-area which is traditionally a headache. Users need automation, cloud-agnostic tools and a DevOps mindset. This tutorial addresses those challenges and gives a practical example of an application that demonstrates these principles. Fully automated one-touch deployment and ongoing policy-based management is provided by the open source Brooklyn project (brooklyn.io). Further examples using CouchDB and different cloud providers, while still maintaining the same management and control, show how this can be applied to a range of application architectures.
