I’m very pleased to announce DataStax Enterprise (DSE) 4.7, a new release of our distributed enterprise database platform powered by Apache Cassandra, and OpsCenter 5.2, an exciting new version of our visual management and monitoring solution.
Last Thursday we held our fourth Cassandra Day of the year, and our first in Europe. Over 500 developers, administrators and CIOs joined us at the Grand Connaught in the heart of glorious London for a day of learning and networking across three tracks.
New Cloud Storage offering leverages advantages of direct attached SSD with safety and reliability of persistent storage. TL;DR Microsoft’s new Premium Storage offering is a compelling blend of network attached persistent SSD with a locally attached SSD cache that is an interesting storage option for DSE and Cassandra deployments in Azure that need to rely on persistent rather than ephemeral storage.
We are excited to be a sponsor at the upcoming Microsoft BUILD Conference at the Moscone Center in San Francisco from April 29th through May 1st.
Today Datastax announced a change to the requirements for the Startup Program. The program has grown significantly over the last year, and we want to continue to fuel that success.
