We’re excited to see Linux.com choose Apache Cassandra as one of its top 10 open source projects for 2011. Joe Brockmeier lists Cassandra’s familiar enterprise characteristics (scalable, fault-tolerant, easy data distribution) as the reason why Cassandra is experiencing such strong momentum and user adoption, which is something we also see here at DataStax.
We’re please to announce the following updates are now available for download:
• Apache Cassandra 1.0.5
• DataStax Community Server 1.0.5
• DataStax Enterprise Server 1.0.1
All fixes/updates from the initial 1.0 releases of the above software can be found in the CHANGES.txt file that is in the base install directory.
A recent study by IT industry analyst group IDC estimates that cloud computing accounts for less than 2 percent of IT spending today, but by 2015, nearly 20 percent of all information will be “touched” (stored or processed) in a cloud.
Just a quick note to let you know that DataStax Enterprise and Community Editions (including OpsCenter) now support Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and CentOS 6, and are ready for download now.
When we first launched DataStax Enterprise, we initially set things up as a 30-day trial. However, you gave us lots of feedback along the lines of, “Nice idea, but I need more time than that to work with your product…” Hey, we hear you and thanks for letting us know.
Thanks to everyone who participated in our recent dev language poll. Your input is really helpful in our roadmap planning, so please keep it up!
According to David Menninger, VP and Research Director at Ventana Research: “67% of Hadoop users see the lack of real-time capabilities as the #1 technology obstacle in analyzing big data on Hadoop.” The thing is, from a broad based perspective, this is the age-old problem database tech pro’s and users have faced for decades: “I really need data in this system over here in that system…” and vice-versa.
At DataStax, we’re totally convinced Apache Cassandra will make your life easier and better where managing your company’s data is concerned.
I was surprised to see the survey results from a recent InformationWeek study on the interest in NoSQL offerings like Cassandra.
