Cassandra is big data, no-SQL infrastructure for building new kinds of web services.
At OpenWorld, the company rolled out not only a social network, but a “NoSQL” database along the lines of MongoDB and Cassandra and a “public cloud” that follows in the footsteps of Amazon Web Services and Google App Engine.
I have to agree with DataStax and other developers in the NoSQL movement: Oracle’s announcement is a validation, more than anything else.
DataStax, a provider of solutions based on the open source Apache Cassandra database platform, announced it is shipping an enterprise database platform designed to enable the management of both real-time and analytic workloads from a single environment.
Oracle’s introduction of its Big Data Appliance at the OpenWorld conference here this week is an indication of the attention it is being forced to pay to NoSQL database technology.
This week at Oracle OpenWorld, Oracle execs unveiled what the company called an “end-to-end solution” for big data, designed to make massive data volumes readily available to BI, analytics and data warehouses.
I’ve attended the Strata conference in NYC last week. Its been many years since I’ve last attended a conference without presenting in it.
I love data, I love the benefits that data analysis offers, and I love the concept of large amounts of data being massaged, queried, and providing insights through a whole new set of technical innovations – and there are many in data right now.
