Project description

Build Status

Hosted By: Cloudsmith


Medusa for Apache Cassandra™

Medusa is an Apache Cassandra backup system.


Medusa is a command line tool that offers the following features:

  • Single node backup
  • Single node restore
  • Cluster wide in place restore (restoring on the same cluster that was used for the backup)
  • Cluster wide remote restore (restoring on a different cluster than the one used for the backup)
  • Backup purge
  • Support for local storage, Google Cloud Storage (GCS), Azure Blob Storage and AWS S3 (and its compatibles)
  • Support for clusters using single tokens or vnodes
  • Full or differential backups

Medusa currently does not support (but we would gladly accept help with changing that):

  • Cassandra deployments with multiple data folder directories.
