DataStax formally introduced previously announced integrations to the hot Apache Spark data-analysis framework, but the wider DataStax Enterprise 4.5 release also brings important new capabilities to Cassandra users.
With DataStax 4.5, the NoSQL company is offering fast analytics through Apache Spark as well as the option to merge Cassandra and Hadoop data.
Big data analytics represents a fundamental part of the modern enterprise’s business strategy.
Industry analyst Curt Monash mentions DataStax as a company breaking new ground with big data technology.
DataStax partnered with Databricks, the company founded by the creators of Apache Spark, to build a supported, open source integration between the two platforms.
