DataStax Enterprise (DSE), built on Apache Cassandra™, delivers what modern businesses need to compete in today’s high-speed, always-on data economy. With in-memory computing capabilities, enterprise-level security, fast and powerful built-in analytics and enterprise search, visual management, and expert support, DataStax Enterprise is the best database choice for online applications that require fast performance with no downtime.
Search technology has profoundly changed the way we access information, the way we learn, the way we work – in essence, the way we discover what’s true. Not surprisingly, search is central to the success of almost any enterprise, these days. To handle today’s data effectively, a search solution must combine high speed with scalability.
With DataStax Enterprise, you can easily search your line-of-business data that’s stored in Cassandra via built-in integration with Apache Solr™, the popular Java-based open source search engine.
“I’d been looking for a ‘holy grail’ solution to fit our big data needs, and full text searching appeared to be the missing link. Large database vendors were not able to provide us with cost-effective solutions. When DataStax came out with support for Solr in DataStax Enterprise, we felt we had found the solution we were looking for.”
Search is one aspect of big data that everyone can relate to. We’ve come to expect that when we type text into a box and click “search,” we’ll get the results we’re looking for in a fraction of a second. That’s true whether you’re shopping online for the perfect pair of hiking boots, using your smartphone to get directions to the appointment that started five minutes ago, searching anxiously for the right specialist for a seriously ill child or needing the latest KPIs for the report due at five o’clock. With its distributed scalability, high performance and ability to handle virtually any type of data, no search solution does a better job of easily tackling today’s diverse enterprise search requirements than DataStax Enterprise with integrated search.
With built-in search powered by Apache Solr, DataStax Enterprise delivers the following key capabilities for line-of-business application data stored in Cassandra:
