DataStax Enterprise is a NoSQL database platform architected for today's line-of-business applications that is powered by Apache Cassandra and designed to securely manage real-time, analytic, and search data all in the same database cluster.
DataStax Enterprise contains a production-certified version of Cassandra for handling real-time, transactional workloads as well as advanced security for protecting sensitive data.
Analytics on Cassandra data may easily be performed by adding nodes dedicated to analytic operations (currently powered by Hadoop). Enterprise search operations on Cassandra data can be run by adding nodes devoted to search (currently handled by Solr) to a cluster.
Each workload (real-time, analytics, and search) are isolated to nodes devoted to their respective operations so that real-time transactional workloads do not negatively impact analytic operations, which in turn do not affect search tasks. Full workload management is built in to each cluster.
Adding additional capacity or different workloads is done simply by adding new nodes to a cluster and choosing how to replicate data between them:
