DataStax Enterprise 6 Doubles Performance for the ‘Right-Now Enterprise’

DataStax, provider of a distributed cloud database built on Apache Cassandra, has introduced DataStax Enterprise 6 (DSE 6).

DSE 6 allows customers to maintain hybrid cloud flexibility with the benefits of a distributed cloud database on any public cloud or on-premises. This new release also increases performance for both reads and writes, which is critical for high-volume data ingestion requirements. With double the performance of Apache Cassandra, DataStax says, DSE 6 delivers twice the responsiveness and the ability to handle twice the throughput on the same infrastructure.

Today, enterprises require customer-focused, real-time, always-on cloud applications. Customers expect high levels of service and a seamlessly integrated experience. DataStax Enterprise drives those customer-focused, real-time, highly available cloud applications via a comprehensive data layer that includes a multi-model database with graph, search, and analytics, as well as a unified security model.

With simple management so that teams can focus on innovation, DataStax says that DSE 6 enables even novice DBAs and DevOps personnel to manage operations like seasoned professionals.

In particular, DSE 6 introduces NodeSync, which significatnly eases operational management by transparently automating Cassandra repair operations and removing the need for manual involvement. This results I noperational cost savings, reduced support cycles, and reduced application management pain— across DSE, including database, search, and analytics.

DSE’s new Upgrade Service also provides “error-free patch upgrades” with zero downtime, and also  offers a white-glove service of DSE with DataStax Managed Cloud for either Amazon AWS or Microsoft Azure, for those organizations that need the service.

Additional enhancements in the new release span areas such as analytics, search, graph, developer tools and security.

Continuing DataStax’s commitment to the open source community, DSE 6 remains fully Cassandra-CQL compliant at the server level and via the DataStax developed and maintained open source drivers which are at the heart of the DSE optimized commercial drivers.
