Cloud computing will help him manage that data with technologies that include distributed database management system Apache Cassandra, which was initially developed for Facebook, and cloud data platform MapReduce.
Another attractive attribute of Cassandra and other open source products is their low cost, as they’re designed to scale out on commodity hardware.”There’s an order-of-magnitude difference in the speed, performance, and cost of deploying conventional relational databases and Cassandra,” said Billy Bosworth, CEO at Cassandra enterprise support and system monitoring and management software provider DataStax.
Apache has announced the release of Cassandra 1.0.0, the first major milestone of the distributed column-based data store coming with data compression and several performance improvements and optimizations.
Jonathan Ellis, vice president of the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) Cassandra project, is reported to have announced that the NoSQL database is now ready for “mere mortals.
DataStax , which just closed an $11 million Series B funding round, offers an enterprise database platform with big functionality enhancements.
One of the leading NoSQL databases has reached the coveted 1.0 release.
“We’re consciously signalling that Cassandra is ready for mere mortals,” said Jonathan Ellis, who is the Apache vice president of Apache Cassandra project, jokingly referring to the amount administrative expertise needed to deploy previous versions of the software.
The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of nearly 150 Open Source projects and initiatives, today announced Apache Cassandra™ v1.0.
