DataStax and Apache Cassandra

Apache Cassandra is the backbone of DataStax technology and the reason we love data management. From its inception, Apache Cassandra has been the premier distributed database on the market, and here at DataStax we remain committed to continuing that legacy. DataStax Distribution of Apache Cassandra offers production-certified Cassandra plus 24 x 7 x 365 expert support to ensure all Cassandra users are making the most of this powerful database.

#1 OSS Committer

DataStax provides over 80% of the commits to Apache Cassandra Open Source and we are one of the driving forces behind Apache Cassandra 4.0.

Apache Cassandra Experts

DataStax Enterprise is developed and updated from the open source Cassandra project, and the DataStax team has been an integral part of the Cassandra project since its inception (check out our history here).

Open Source Leadership

DataStax provides open source leadership in other database-related projects (like Apache TinkerPop™) as part of our commitment to open source.

DataStax Enterprise vs. DataStax Distribution of Apache Cassandra

While the DataStax Distribution of Apache Cassandra maintains both application and data layer compatibility with open source Apache Cassandra (DSE 6 only maintains application layer compatibility), there are a host of other features in DSE 6 that are not included. Features such as Advanced Performance, NodeSync, DSE Search, DSE Graph, and DSE Analytics are all DSE 6 exclusives.
