House of Cards, staring Kevin Spacey, is the first major TV show to completely bypass the usual television ecosystem of networks and cable operators and premier on the streaming service Netflix.
I met up with DataStax earlier this week, a company building a business around the Apache-licensed Cassandra key value store. the company is very bullish about the European market for non relational database technology generally, and Cassandra specifically.
Many companies are currently in the midst of figuring out how to best manage the ever increasing influx of both semi-structured and unstructured data.
Last year was a good year for NoSQL outfit DataStax. The big data company’s customer base increased roughly tenfold to 270, including 20 Fortune 100 firms and names such as eBay, Netflix and Thomson Reuters.
Big data platform provider DataStax, which helped Netflix determine the likely popularity of its first proprietary series House of Cards, has opened a London Office to help it keep up with demand for its services in EMEA.
NoSQL suppliers DataStax, CouchBase and 10Gen all smell blood as they land and expand on European territory. All seem to sense a weakening of the relational model, with its neat rows and columns.
DataStax, the open source start-up which combines Apache Cassandra (the database developed by Facebook) with Hadoop (the number-crunching platform based on Google’s backend infrastructure), has opened an office in London to address the growing Big Data market in Europe.
Something is seriously wrong in Larry Land. Oracle does not command absolute control like it once did. You can see this clearly with the earnings the company posted last week and the growth that startups like Datastax are witnessing as more customers seek alternative databases for online applications.
