DataStax has released DataStax Enterprise 6 (DSE 6). DSE 6 allows customers to maintain hybrid cloud flexibility with all the benefits of a distributed cloud database on any public cloud or on-premises. DSE 6 includes all the advantages of Apache Cassandra and much more with none of the complexities, delivering easy enterprise-wide adoption at scale. DSE 6 builds on its already superior performance for both reads and writes, which is critical for high- volume data ingestion requirements. Double the performance of Apache Cassandra, DSE 6 delivers twice the responsiveness and the ability to handle twice the throughput on the same infrastructure.
Our enterprise customers are under intense pressure to bring the value of their data to new levels, and this release makes building and delivering transformative applications faster, easier, and more secure, said Billy Bosworth, CEO of DataStax. The fact that we deliver this power in an architecture that accelerates hybrid-cloud initiatives is doubly beneficial.
Today, enterprises require customer-focused, real-time, always-on cloud applications. Customers expect great service and a seamlessly integrated experience right now'. DataStax Enterprise drives those applications via a comprehensive data layer that includes a multi-model database with graph, search, and analytics all with a unified security model.
Right-Now Economy applications demand the highest responsiveness, no matter the surge in users or workloads. DSE 6 Advanced Performance outpaces open source Apache Cassandra with half the latency for superior application responsiveness and twice the throughput for read and write operations.
Right-Now Economy applications must be operationally simple to manage so that teams can focus on innovation. DSE 6 enables even novice DBAs and DevOps personnel to manage operations like seasoned professionals.
DSE already provides state-of-the-art simplicity compared to relational databases because it doesn't require complex and costly strategies or additional systems to achieve uptime or widely distribute data.
DSE 6 introduces NodeSync, which dramatically eases operational management by transparently automating Cassandra repair operations and removing the need for manual involvement. That means operational cost savings, reduced support cycles, and reduced application management pain. These advantages extend across DSE, including database, search, and analytics.
