We’re living in a world where customer engagement extends to so much more than welcoming back a returning customer. Today, a consumer can make purchases, perform financial transactions, and interact with their social network, all independent of location as well as with the convenience of one or more mobile devices.
That’s how the old saying goes, right? Today marks a historic moment in our company’s history. Just under 3 years ago, we moved our team of 8 people into a “huge” 7,000 sqare foot space in San Mateo.
This week’s Cassandra Summit 2013 was beyond amazing. Not only was it the largest gathering of Cassandra experts in history, but the *quality* of the attendees, speakers, and sponsors is what really blew me away.
With all the hype and smoke-and-mirrors around big data, it is very hard to get the signal through the noise. At this year’s Cassandra Summit, we’re going to help you get that signal loud and clear as you see firsthand how Cassandra is going mainstream.
2013 is going to be another truly exciting year for DataStax. Big data has finally gone mainstream; everyone and everything is now a data generator, with data growth exceeding population growth by 40 times.
Are you the next great data developer? If so, you could win $10,000 from DataStax.

2012 was an impactful year at DataStax and I wanted to take a few moments to share some of our highlights from both a business and technology perspective.
The 2012 Cassandra Summit, held at the Santa Clara convention center, was by all accounts an outstanding success. With well over 800 attendees, attendance was nearly double last year’s event, and more than quadruple the number of the first summit held just two years ago.
Here at DataStax, we are excited to honor the Apache Cassandra community with a first-class event next week (8/8) in Santa Clara.
