This article guides you through getting started with DataStax Enterprise (DSE) in the CenturyLink cloud. Blueprints are provided to launch a pre-configured and tuned starter cluster, managed by the DataStax OpsCenter tool. In particular, this guide focuses on how to use CenturyLink’s high performance hyperscale nodes and anti-affinity pools to deploy a five-node cluster equipped with locally attached solid state flash storage (SSD).
