The NoSQL set is led by 10Gen, Amazon, CouchBase, DataStax and Neo Technologies.
DataStax is an interesting company to watch and one to keep an eye on.
Looking to combine the best real-time attributes of NoSQL databases, DataStax this week unveiled a DataStax Enterprise 4.5 database platform that combines Cassandra with the Apache Spark in-memory computing engine.
DataStax Spark support may grab headlines, but a bring-your-own-Hadoop connector in DataStax Enterprise 4.5 deserves equal billing.
DataStax says the latest version of its Apache Cassandra NoSQL database puts the focus on analytics, offering for the first time in-memory processing via the Apache Spark open-source engine.
The limitation of historical data analysis as a forecasting tool is spawning a rush by analytics providers to add real-time processing functionality to their offerings.
Database specialist DataStax is using the 2014 Spark Summit to announce the release of its latest product.
DataStax today introduced an upgrade to its Cassandra NoSQL database offering that sports new Big Data capabilities via integration with Apache Spark and Hadoop.
