DataStax Brings Enterprise Security to NoSQL
February 4, 2013
The next generation of the DataStax data management platform will be made available at the end of February. DataStax Enterprise 3.0 attempts to tie the flexibility of NoSQL databases to the security features enterprises have come to expect. Kristen Bent covers all the details for CRN in her story, “DataStax Merges Enterprise Security, NoSQL In Big Data Platform.”
The new platform is described:
“The new platform, dubbed DataStax Enterprise (DSE) 3.0, is targeted at organizations looking to adopt NoSQL databases — a type of next-generation, non-relational database optimized for big data — without sacrificing the robust security features native to more traditional SQL databases, explained Robin Schumacher, vice president of products at DataStax.“
While DataStax Enterprise 3.0 may be the latest in security technology for NoSQL-based solutions, some would still say that it is not quite as secure as more traditional options. Apache Lucene and Solr are the standards in the world of enterprise search, and provide a stable and predictable environment upon which to build. Industry trusted solutions like LucidWorks, which utilize the power of Lucene and Solr, might be a less risky solution for security in the enterprise.
