SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/25/13 --


  • DataStax continues to penetrate the large and growing big data market -- big data driven IT spending set to double to $55 billion by 2016, according to Gartner(1)

  • Customers such as Thomson Reuters rely on DataStax Enterprise (DSE) to manage real-time big data analytics

DataStax, the company that powers the big data apps that transform business, today announced the general availability of DataStax Enterprise (DSE) 3. The newest version of DataStax's Apache Cassandra-based big data platform provides the most comprehensive security feature set of any NoSQL platform, while still delivering its core benefits of scalability, easy manageability and continuous availability.

Big Data Drives IT Spending As Businesses Strive to Maintain Competitive Edge
DSE 3 is a complete integrated big data platform that combines a production-certified version of Cassandra with Apache Solr and Apache Hadoop to deliver continuous availability support and performance across multiple data centers. This comprehensive approach to data is crucial given the explosion of big data in the enterprise. Gartner estimates that companies are slated to double their big data driven IT spend over the next five years, with an estimated $55 billion spent in 2016. Big data is pervasive and companies must evolve their IT architectures to maintain their competitive edge.

"DSE is already running mission-critical apps but one hurdle to widespread adoption remains -- security," said Billy Bosworth, CEO, DataStax. "Now with DSE 3, not only do we meet the needs of app and database teams, but also those of the chief security officer."

DSE 3 is architected to securely manage real-time, analytic and enterprise search data all in the same database cluster. Cassandra, Hadoop, and Solr workloads cohesively function together, enabling organizations to quickly search, manage and scale massive amounts of data. DSE 3 is also a critical component in enabling customers to draw impactful business conclusions.

"DataStax's big data platform, combined with Tableau's industry-leading business intelligence and analytics tools, allows our customers to draw meaningful conclusions that provide a distinct competitive advantage," said Dan Jewett, vice president of product management, Tableau Software.

Advanced Security for the Enterprise -- Catches Eye of Leading Financial Institution
DSE 3 delivers the most comprehensive security feature set of any NoSQL solution, offering enterprises advanced security when handling mission-critical data. DSE 3 features internal authentication, external authentication via Kerberos and LDAP, transparent data encryption, data auditing, secured client-to-node transport and easy object permission management based on the familiar relational database GRANT/REVOKE paradigm.

"Security is very important to us, so we're naturally very pleased to see all the new security features in DataStax Enterprise 3," said Kevin Chen, global technical director, Thomson Reuters. "DataStax's scalability and performance are enabling us to develop an exciting financial data analytics platform that will create a better experience for our audience."

DSE Helps HealthCare Anytime Improve Patients' Medical Care
HealthCare Anytime, a provider of web-based patient portal solutions, helps healthcare organizations achieve meaningful use certification and enables patients to manage their health records, medications, appointments and more. HealthCare Anytime relies on DSE as its big data platform and has improved patients' medical care while achieving a nearly 400% ROI over five years, as well as a 100X performance increase and $750K in IT cost savings.

DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices. To retrofit existing programs across all these devices using traditional programming methods is very costly and time consuming – often prohibitively so.

These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
