We are happy to announce the beta 2 of the C/C++ driver for Apache Cassandra.
Moving data structures off of the Java heap to native memory is important to keep up with datasets that continue to grow, while the JVM stays stuck at heap sizes of about 8GB.
DataStax Community Edition 1.2.18 and 2.0.9 are now available on the Planet Cassandra Downloads page.
Way back in version 1.0 of DataStax Enterprise (DSE), we supplied built-in capabilities to run batch analytics on Cassandra data with Hadoop MapReduce, Hive, Pig, and Mahout.
DataStax Enterprise (DSE) 4.5 provides integration with external Hadoop vendors such as Cloudera and Hortonworks, further enhancing DSE’s analytical capabilities.
