DataStax Enterprise 4.5 Unveiled

datastax_logo_rgbAt the rercent Spark Summit 2014, DataStax, a leading distributed database management system that delivers Apache Cassandra to the enterprise, announced the general availability of DataStax Enterprise 4.5 (DSE 4.5). DSE 4.5 delivers excellent performance and is now even easier to develop against, deploy and operate. With this release, CIOs can more readily align enterprise technology with business requirements and are free to focus on delivering innovative customer-­facing applications.

Following a recently announced partnership with Databricks, DataStax has integrated Spark for real-­time analytics into DataStax Enterprise. DataStax Enterprise 4.5 is the only distributed database management system for online applications with both in-­memory transactional and analytical capabilities, scalability for any sized workload, enterprise search, comprehensive security, and transparent management services.

DataStax Enterprise 4.5 adds a new Performance Service to its suite of automatic management services designed to simplify operations. This new functionality removes the mystery of how well a cluster is performing by supplying diagnostic information that can easily be queried. Further, DSE 4.5 automatically scans clusters, visually identifies issues, and provides expert advice on resolving problems.

Enhanced visual management supplies even greater ease of use and built-­in security for managing large enterprise systems. In addition to visually enabling best practices
enforcement and providing customized performance monitoring, a single installation of OpsCenter can now support the management of 1,000+ node clusters.

With 4.5, for the first time companies can now merge Cassandra data with Hadoop and easily integrate operational and historical data together. To build on DataStax’s
commitment, we have forged solid partnerships with Hadoop vendors Cloudera and Hortonworks and DSE has been certified for their platforms.
