Keep Your Big Data Applications Up and Running

In these days of soaring customer expectations where the competition is never more than a click 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 line-of-business applications going around the clock. It relies on Cassandra’s peer-to peer “masterless” architecture in which all nodes in a database cluster are equal and where redundancy of both data and function are automatically built-in. This continuous availability extends to any combination of cloud, on-premise or multi-datacenter resources – and to running analytics on Cassandra data with Hadoop and searching Cassandra data with Solr.

Ensure That Your Data Remains Safe

Securing 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. Deploy with confidence in environments where data security is a top priority, relying on the security capabilities needed to protect sensitive data. Even banks and health care providers are meeting the demands of today’s data while keeping their online applications secure.

DataStax Enterprise offers the most comprehensive set of security features of any NoSQL provider, including:

  • Internal and external authentication for database access
  • Granular permission control for database changes
  • Transparent encryption for enhanced file protection
  • Advanced data auditing capabilities
  • Client to node encryption that safeguards data in transit
