Healthx wanted a certified Apache Cassandra™ database for managing real-time data, so it turned to DataStax – and become one of the first companies to use DataStax Enterprise 2.0.
“We really like the integration with Solr. We get the full redundancy that you’d expect out of Cassandra as well as the full text indexing of Solr. The two things together make a win.” -Scott McPheeters, HealthX
