In November 2014 we wrote a blog post titled "Tackling Cassandra Data Integration" about our partnership with DataStax – the company that delivers Cassandra to the enterprise. As the data landscape grows, companies must have a solution that can process high-volume, high-velocity data capture and analysis. Cassandra fills that void, and the Progress® DataDirect® for Cassandra driver serves as the connector between data and actionable insights.
This is why we are so excited to see the DataStax Enterprise 4.6 release! DSE 4.6 includes some very impressive new capabilities supporting Hybrid Transaction/Analytical Processing (HTAP) using Apache Spark and Spark SQL with workload separation between OLTP and analytics use cases. This is a win-win for customers needing blazing-fast, web scale transactions coupled with real-time analytics. With the integration of Apache Spark, DSE 4.6 now has security enhancements, analytics on streaming data and increased performance for modern web, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT)-style applications.
Progress DataDirect offers Cassandra SQL-based ODBC & JDBC products and our forthcoming Spark SQL ODBC & JDBC products, which we will preview this month, as the perfect complement to DSE 4.6. With this new connectivity, we can help DataStax customers be even more successful. You’ll want to stay tuned to this blog for upcoming preview details.
If you are interested in learning more about how these new products will complement DataStax Enterprise 4.6, contact us now. We’d love to hear from you. Or sign up to participate in a preview of our Apache Cassandra connectivity solution.
