Big data applications vendor DataStax said this week it will start shipping its next-generation data management platform on Feb. 25, a release the company says melds the flexibility of NoSQL databases with enterprise-level security.
Two major trends have emerged in the Big Data channel in recent months: First, NoSQL is becoming an increasingly popular database choice, and second, commitment to security is finally catching up with the drive to build Big Data infrastructures as quickly as possible.
Cassandra is a major wide column store NoSQL database. It’s popular in standalone form, and can be used with Hadoop to perform MapReduce analyses on Cassandra column families (tables).
DataStax, the company that was founded to take the Cassandra NoSQL data store created by Facebook commercial and therefore usable by mere enterprise data centers, is keeping to its cadence and is rolling up a new release of its DataStax Enterprise Edition.
There is no doubt that Big Data has exploded over the last 12 months. The real question lies in how many businesses are truly maximizing the opportunities that Big Data can afford.
