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.

The latest version features enterprise provisioning that makes it fast and easy to visually create new clusters on premise and in the cloud, and enables point and click management of key admin tasks.
