About DataStax Enterprise

DataStax Enterprise accelerates the ability to deliver real-time value at epic scale by providing a comprehensive and operationally simple data management layer with a unique always-on architecture built on Apache Cassandra™. DSE provides the distributed, responsive and intelligent foundation to build and run cloud applications.

DataStax Enterprise includes the following:

  • Advanced Indexing and Search – DSE includes support for complex queries across database nodes, allowing applications to perform search requests across huge volumes of data. DSE makes it simple to target use cases that require indexing transactions, hosting product catalogs, or searching document repositories.
  • Powerful Integrated Analytics – DSE includes integrated Apache Spark™ support for large scale data processing and analytics, allowing developers to construct analytic processes that interact with data across both streaming and batch workloads. DSE extends the functionality found in Apache SparkTM to eliminate points of failure, increase performance, and provide full integration with search and graph data.
  • Multi-Model and Graph – Today’s applications have to consume data using a variety of different access patterns, which would previously require different database platforms for each pattern. DSE supports multiple data models including key-value, tabular, JSON/Document and graph, allowing company IT teams to consolidate on one scalable platform for their application data.
  • Real-time monitoring, tuning and security management – DataStax Enterprise OpsCenter provides enterprises with a range of management services for their deployments, from intelligent cluster management and API integration through to automation of regular management tasks based on established best practices. Alongside this, DSE provides a set of security and access control tools to ensure that data remains secure.
