Move even faster with integrated real-time data, analytics and search
DataStax Enterprise empowers you to put more of your big data to work for your business faster than any other alternative. It seamlessly integrates best-of-breed technologies for real-time data with Apache Cassandra, batch analytics with Apache Hadoop, enterprise search with Apache Solr and visual monitoring and management with OpsCenter. It extends Cassandra’s big data functionality and continuous availability to deep analytics and search workloads simultaneously within the same database cluster. Now you can more efficiently feed the very latest data and insights into your business to make better decisions sooner, adapt more swiftly to customer input and get the jump on the competition to seize new opportunities revealed in your data.

A comprehensive, secure platform for enterprise big data workloads
Only DataStax Enterprise combines the industry’s leading open source database technologies into a single, comprehensive and secure enterprise-grade platform, uniquely architected for today’s complex big data workloads. Based on Apache Cassandra, the exceptionally scalable and reliable NoSQL database, DataStax Enterprise tackles the complete spectrum of big data challenges that traditional databases and other NoSQL solutions can’t.
Go as big as you need with unlimited scalability and high performance
With Cassandra’s distributed architecture at its core, DataStax Enterprise enables you to achieve massive scalability using low-cost commodity hardware. It’s versatile enough to handle terabytes to petabytes of data and thousands of concurrent users/operations per second across many datacenters as easily as it does much smaller data volumes. Better still, with DataStax Enterprise, not only can you scale in a linear fashion as much as you need, you can do so with no loss of throughput, as you invariably get when attempting to scale traditional or other NoSQL systems.

Keep your big data applications up and running at all times
In these days of soaring customer expectations where the competition is never more than a finger-twitch away, even the slightest hiccup in the availability of your online applications can cost you revenue – and customers you may not win back. DataStax Enterprise provides continuous availability to keep your essential big data applications going around the clock. It relies on Cassandra’s peer-to peer “masterless” architecture in which all nodes in a database are equal. Data is automatically and continually replicated among nodes. You get none of the pitfalls, latency problems, single point of failure issues and performance headaches associated with master/slave setups. Continuous availability in DataStax Enterprise extends to any combination of cloud, on-premise or multi-datacenter resources – as well as to analytics in Hadoop and enterprise search in Solr.
Ensure that your big data remains safe
Securing big data against theft and the malicious misuse of applications is a prime mission for any organization who conducts business across any network – internal or on the Web. That includes just about everyone these days. With DataStax Enterprise, you get the most comprehensive security feature set of any NoSQL solution on the market. You can deploy with confidence in environments where data security is a top priority because it contains the sorts of security capabilities today’s advanced applications need to protect and encrypt sensitive data.
Use all of your data, no matter what form it takes
The flexible schema design of the Cassandra, Hadoop and Solr components of DataStax Enterprise accommodate a broad range of data types – structured, semi-structured and unstructured. You’re no longer limited to the rigid schema of legacy database systems. Whatever data you need to consume – from server logs, social media postings, emails, tweets, PDFs, Word docs, clickstreams, you name it – DataStax Enterprise can handle it. Finally, your database fits your data, not the other way around.
Perform complex workloads more efficiently
DataStax Enterprise solves the mixed workload problem that has plagued enterprises for years. It enables you to perform real-time, analytic and search operations on the same data at the same time with great efficiency. In contrast to traditional systems, diverse workloads in DataStax don’t compete with one another for compute resources. Instead, you have the option to run them in parallel on separate nodes in the same database cluster. Data also moves much faster between workloads in DataStax Enterprise. That’s because the platform eliminates the need for complicated extract-transform-load (ETL) operations that traditional systems must use to transfer data among real-time systems, analytic databases or data warehouses. In DataStax Enterprise, data moves transparently and automatically with no additional action required.
Distribute data anywhere – in multiple data centers or the cloud
With DataStax Enterprise, you can easily manage data, no matter where it originates or resides, without reconfiguring your existing infrastructure. Whether you want to keep data in multiple locations for disaster recovery scenarios or for speedier performance near end users, DataStax Enterprise offers support for multiple data centers and the cloud through its implementation of Cassandra. Simply configure how many copies of your data you want in each data center, and DataStax Enterprise handles the rest – automatically replicating your data for you.
Simplify big data operations and lower your total cost of ownership
DataStax Enterprise provides you with much more than you get with traditional vendor databases costing eighty to ninety percent more. Its superior economy comes not just from its open source roots, but because it’s far simpler to deploy and manage than other systems. Unlike many of those options, it requires no proprietary hardware.
It also comes with DataStax OpsCenter, a visual browser-based console that allows you to provision new nodes, even entire clusters, online in just a few minutes. With DataStax Enterprise it’s easy to move data to and from your existing relational systems. It even uses a query language (CQL) that’s so similar to SQL your developers will never miss a beat.
A complete package
In addition to its enhanced data security and management capabilities, DataStax Enterprise comes with a full slate of training, support and consultation services, enabling you to get the most bang for your investment. You get 24×7 expert support, certified software updates, built-in data migration capabilities for both RDBMS and application log data and much more.
