DataStax Bumps Up NoSQL with New Enterprise Edition
January 28, 2013
DataStax has increased the power of its NoSQL database by adding the latest Hadoop data muncher and Solr search. The Register covers all the new features in its article, “DataStax Cranks Up Facebook NoSQL to 3.0 with Enterprise Features.”
The article begins:
“DataStax, the company that was founded to take the Cassandra NoSQL data store created by Facebook commercial and therefore usable by mere enterprise data centers, is keeping to its cadence and is rolling up a new release of its DataStax Enterprise Edition. The company has also put out an update to its Community Edition, which is available for free and which does not include some of the proprietary integrations between the Cassandra data store and the Hadoop big data muncher and the Solr search engine that have been tweaked to run atop of Cassandra.”
Open source is the foundation of Cassandra and the enhancements to DataStax Enterprise 3.0 are also due to open source technology. Hadoop and Solr are both part of the Apache Foundation open source community. Solr is known as the best open source search option, serving as the foundation for many commercial search systems. One award-winner known for its Solr and Lucene foundation is LucidWorks. LucidWorks builds Big Data and enterprise search solutions on the strength of these trusted open source essentials.
