Powerful NoSQL database platform for today’s dynamic online applications

In-memory computing, search, analytics, security and simplified management built on Open Source Apache Cassandra.

DataStax is the company behind Apache Cassandra, which powers real-time online applications. While relational databases fail under modern and dynamic workloads, high-volume data and new business requirements, Cassandra’s modern architecture makes it massively scalable, always available and easy to deploy. DataStax delivers a production version of Apache Cassandra, DataStax Enterprise (DSE), and the ecosystem to make the vision behind Cassandra a reality.

Enterprise Capabilities Built on Open Source

Shorten the time to revenue for Cassandra deployments and extend capabilities of Cassandra with enterprise-ready features and technology, such as search, security, analytics, in-memory computing and easy-to-use management tools. DataStax Enterprise and its supporting ecosystem provide fast performance, strong security, and operational simplicity for line-of-business applications.
