On June 27, 2018

SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 27, 2018 – DataStax, powering the Right-Now Enterprise with the always-on, distributed cloud database built on Apache Cassandra®, announced today that independent research firm zData found that DataStax Enterprise 6 (DSE 6) consistently outperformed open source Apache Cassandra® and previous versions of DataStax Enterprise, in all tested workloads, and oftentimes by a wide margin.

zData conducted the IoT-style benchmark study to test out the performance differences between open source Apache Cassandra and DSE 6. The study found that DSE 6 achieved up to 3x performance improvement over open source and showed up to a 10x reduction in latency.

“We’ve always been confident that the performance work our engineers put into DSE 6 Advanced Performance pushed our solution’s speed into overdrive,” said Robin Schumacher, Senior Vice President and Chief Product Officer at DataStax. “It’s validating to have an experienced independent source, like zData, not only confirm, but deliver results that have exceeded our own performance expectations.”

DSE 6 allows customers to maintain hybrid cloud flexibility with all the benefits of a distributed cloud database on any public cloud or on-premises. DSE 6 includes all the advantages of Apache Cassandra plus much more with none of the complexities, delivering easy enterprise-wide adoption at scale. DSE 6 builds on its already superior performance for both reads and writes, which is critical for high-volume data ingestion requirements.
