What’s New in DataStax Enterprise 2.0

Title: What’s New in DataStax Enterprise 2.0

Description: DataStax is the leading provider of enterprise NoSQL software products and services based on Apache Cassandra™. Its commercial offering, DataStax Enterprise, provides modern businesses with a progressive big data management system that delivers Cassandra as a primary system of record/real-time datastore for critical production applications, and smartly integrates Hadoop analytic capabilities on that same data.

With version 2.0 of DataStax Enterprise, DataStax has extended its big data platform to include enterprise search capabilities via the most popular open source enterprise search platform in use today, Apache Solr™. This inclusion enables DataStax Enterprise to manage real-time, analytic, and enterprise search functions all within a single integrated big data platform. In addition to enterprise search, DataStax Enterprise 2.0 contains enhancements that enable elastic workload reprovisioning across a cluster, migration of relational database management system (RDBMS) and log-based data into the server, and increased Hadoop support.

Further, DataStax OpsCenter – a visual management and monitoring solution for Cassandra and all of DataStax Enterprise server’s functionality – has been enhanced to include support for simultaneously managing multiple clusters, and to visually manage backup operations across all nodes and clusters.

This paper provides an in-depth look at the new functionality in DataStax Enterprise 2.0 as well as a brief introduction to the solution for those unfamiliar with DataStax’s big data platform.
