Introducing DataStax Enterprise 2.0

By Billy Bosworth -  March 21, 2012 | 0 Comments

Today we announced DataStax Enterprise 2.0, the next step in our evolution of helping people solve their big data problems.

In DataStax Enterprise 2.0, we have added:

  • Enterprise search via the extremely popular open-source project, Solr.
  • Elastic workload provisioning that allows your cluster to change compute power between Cassandra and Hadoop based on your application needs.
  • Snap-in log integration for application and weblogs so that they can be written, indexed, and searched, all in the same cluster with the rest of your data.
  • RDBMS data transfer via Sqoop to help quickly move your relational data into DataStax Enterprise.

The question: What does this really mean to businesses?

Big data applications affect three primary groups: The “Business”, Developers, and IT operations/decision makers.  If these groups are misaligned, it creates substantial challenges that slow everything down to a crawl.

With DataStax Enterprise 2.0, we provide a platform that can deliver continuous availability without compromising performance, operational simplicity, or cost.  The Business no longer has to wait on complex infrastructures to be built or managed.  Developers have a single cluster for handling everything in their applications from real-time transactions, to Hadoop batch analytics, to powerful search.  And IT operations has an elegant architecture that will easily span datacenters and/or the cloud, which means low operational costs even under the most extreme demands.

This is what DataStax Enterprise is all about.  Helping customers move faster in what otherwise can be a very complicated world of systems that fall short on many levels, creating an inability to react and build great things with big data applications.

I also want to publicly thank all our folks at DataStax who have made this such a great release!  We have an amazing team dedicated to you, our customers, and I could not be any prouder of the work they do.
