DataStax Enterprise vs. DataStax Distribution of Apache Cassandra

While committed to the advancement of Apache Cassandra, DataStax also recognizes that open source software (OSS) is not the best solution for many application use cases. That’s why we created robust, enterprise-ready Cassandra solutions based on real-world customer requirements.
 
Both DataStax Enterprise (DSE) and DataStax Distribution of Apache Cassandra include production-certified Cassandra and 24x7x365 expert support to minimize the risk and cost typically associated with open-source software. For mission-critical applications and more advanced use cases, DataStax Enterprise 6 also comes complete with enterprise-ready features such as advanced performance, security enhancements, NodeSync, DSE Search, DSE Graph, and DSE Analytics.
