GridGain Adds Support for Apache Cassandra in Updated Platform Release

GridGain Systems, provider of enterprise-grade In-Memory Data Fabric solutions based on Apache Ignite, is releasing a new edition of its signature platform.

GridGain Professional Edition 1.6 adds native support for Apache Cassandra, a new ODBC driver, deadlock-free transactions, and the availability of a new hosted web management console.

"With the latest release, we have made it easier for IT to integrate GridGain into any environment by offering features such as new deadlock management, an ODBC driver and a hosted web console, which enable more users to be more productive,” said Abe Kleinfeld, President and CEO of GridGain.  “We are especially excited about the new native support for Apache Cassandra which provides Cassandra users with new capabilities such as ad hoc queries and full ACID transactions while achieving in-memory speeds."

These features enable easy integration with data analytics tools, provide enhanced performance, offer access to a new web-based configuration and management tool for GridGain and Apache Ignite deployments, and add significant database performance improvement for Cassandra users, according to GridGain.

"The GridGain In-Memory Data Fabric is now the go-to technology for companies needing to process and analyze massive amounts of data for real-time transactional, analytical or hybrid transactional/analytical use cases," Klienfeld said.
