Apache Cassandra™ is unique in its abilities to support multiple data centers and keep data synchronized between geographic locations. In addition, Cassandra’s multi-data center support enables workload isolation, enabling both transactional and analytic workloads on the same live data.
Like me, I’m sure you’ve come to the world of NoSQL from relational database management systems (RDBMS) such as Oracle, MySQL, SQL Server, etc.
DataStax Enterprise 5.0 introduces two major new database security features ‒ Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) and DSE Unified Authentication. Combined, these features allow for flexible authentication and authorization controls to support a variety of database client types, and database consumers.
What a week it was for the DataStax team at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) held in Toronto! The conference ran from July 10 – 14 and brought together 15,000+ attendees from around the globe for a week of networking and learning—all with the goal of increasing partner profitability and accelerating business growth.
Two factors critical to the success of any Cassandra / DataStax Enterprise implementation are: (1) a well architected data model; (2) fast storage.
Since the early days of DataStax, we have been strong supporters of the Apache Cassandra™ community. At the start of the entire NoSQL shift, building community has been one of our critical functions.
Introduction If you would like an enterprise class provisioning capability to significantly simplify and automate your DataStax Enterprise (DSE) deployments, please read on.
Analytics has been an important component of DataStax Enterprise since version 1.0. We have committed to enhancing the exceptional transactional capabilities of Apache Cassandra™ with the analytical needs that cloud applications require, and DSE 5.0 furthers that commitment with a number of exciting enhancements and new features.
This is our seventh annual Cassandra Summit, and it has grown dramatically from the first one which had just over 100 attendees way back when Apache Cassandra™ was at 0.6.
