We’re pleased to announce that Cassandra 1.0 is now available! DataStax’s talented engineering staff along with other developers in the Cassandra community have worked hard to deliver not only a post-relational database platform that is ready for the enterprise where features and functionality are concerned, but also one that is dramatically easier to use than previous versions.
Thanks to everyone who voted in our poll that asked what platform you used for development.
Hi everyone – Please make sure to take about 5 seconds and vote in our latest quickpoll, which asks which platforms you currently DEVELOP on.
Thanks to those of you that have contacted us with feedback and questions on our recent Brisk and Solandra post.
We released Brisk a number of months back with the objective being to give our community something that offers a great foundation for coupling together all the benefits of Hadoop with the power of Apache Cassandra.
There’s so much Internet FUD out there about NoSQL databases like Cassandra not being ‘safe’ for data because of a supposed lack of support for strong data consistency.
We’ve rolled out new ‘Quick Polls’ on the DataStax home page as well as the Dev Center to gather feedback from you on a variety of topics such as what new security enhancements you want in Cassandra, what your primary database platform is for production use, etc.
We’re happy to let you know that the latest production release of OpsCenter is ready for download!
Hello to all of you around the globe who use Cassandra!
