DataStax ‘Database as a Service’ Coming to Google Cloud

Google Chooses DataStax to Meet Enterprise Demand for Cloud-Delivered Apache Cassandra

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – April 9, 2019  DataStax, the leading provider of the active-everywhere hybrid cloud database built on Apache Cassandra, today announced that it has been selected as one of Google Cloud’s first new Database as a Service (DBaaS) offerings as part of their OSS Managed Partner Services Initiative. Google chose DataStax due to strong demand from its enterprise customers who already use DataStax on premise to support always-on, web scale applications. This is the first time DataStax will deliver an “as a service” offering and DataStax is one of only a small, select group of vendors to be part of Google Cloud’s OSS Managed Partner Services Initiative.

Enterprises adopting modern data architectures are building strategies that support hybrid and multi-cloud applications. This solution from DataStax and Google gives enterprises flexibility to move applications and data seamlessly between and among public clouds, private clouds, and on-premise systems.

“We have a long record of delivering always-on and highly scalable data infrastructures to our enterprise customers and are happy to have our first ‘database as a service’ offering in Google Cloud Platform,” said Billy Bosworth, CEO of DataStax. “Recently, enterprise customers have said they want those database attributes available to them in a variety of on-premise and cloud options–or in other words, for their hybrid cloud and multi-cloud realities. At the same time, those customers have explicitly stated they want maximum flexibility in how and when to move data to the cloud and between or among public and private clouds of their own choosing. Our agreement with Google Cloud to offer DataStax Enterprise in a DBaaS offering represents a first step in making this a simple yet powerful reality. We’re excited to work with Google to make hybrid cloud a compelling market advantage for our mutual enterprise customers.”

Availability and Pricing

DataStax and Google Cloud will make DataStax available as a DBaaS offering by calendar Q3 2019 as a beta for select customers with general availability expected in calendar Q4 2019. Pricing is available upon request.
