The Power of JDBC Connectivity to Cassandra

The Power of JDBC Connectivity to Cassandra

June 03, 2016 0 Comments

JDBC connectivity to Apache Cassandra exponentially increases throughput, decreases CPU usage and uses less memory. Here’s what to expect for a connector.

Maximize Cassandra Performance

Hybrid ConnectivityIf you are planning on doing an overnight or batch process, then it’s fair to say that a generic driver would be sufficient for basic needs. However, if you want high performance out of Cassandra and your data, the DataDirect JDBC driver for Cassandra takes your connectivity to the next level.

Out-of-the-box Functionality

While it is easy to think that a top tier data connector would be hard to set up and configure, that's far from the truth. Our JDBC connector is and out-of-the-box solution that enables both business users and OEM/ISV partners to easily embed the driver. Similar products do not have out-of-the-box functionality and are much more complicated to set up.

Business intelligence applications require certain features in order to work properly. Some of these include support for batch processing, JDBC subqueries, sorting/filtering binary data and TUPLE & UDT data types. Many JDBC connectors do not include these features or are limited to only a few. Our Cassandra JDBC connector includes all of them right from the start.

Generate the Most Accurate Schema

When dealing with JDBC connectivity, there are two ways to generate reliable schema. The less accurate method is data sampling. The most accurate method, which leads to the best insights, is the use of database metadata. Most companies in this space create JDBC connectors that generate schema through data sampling. We take no shortcuts and generate ours via database metadata for the most accurate results possible.
