One month after MongoDB gained one rank, Cassandra made this outstanding move in our ranking, underlining the increasing popularity of NoSQL database systems.
In particular, advocates of Cassandra would suggest that event streaming is fine if you just want to analyse what’s happening right now but that if you want to understand what’s happening now in the context of what was happening five minutes ago and five minutes before that – in other words, trending – then Cassandra is better option.
“Data Scientist” is the sexiest job of the 21st century. The Harvard Business Review made this claim last October and it seems that everyone (including your grandmother) has been repeating it ever since.
HBase is modeled after Google BigTable and is part of the world’s most popular big data processing platform, Apache Hadoop.
This past week featured a number of Big Data developments. Cloudera released an open-source authentication engine for Hadoop, Google upgraded its Cloud Platform with new data management capabilities, and DataStax raised $45 million in funding to accelerate Cassandra development.
DataStax, provider of a big data platform based on Apache Cassandra, has announced new versions of its enterprise-grade and community-edition database software, along with a new round of funding to help to grow its business.
DataStax says the funding builds on its ongoing customer momentum, which includes 20 companies in the Fortune 100, as well as “dozens” of enterprise migrating from Oracle to Cassandra-based NoSQL.
Apache Cassandra distributor DataStax announced yesterday morning that it has raised $45 million in Series D funding from Scale Venture Partners, DFJ Growth, and Next World Capital.
