Cloud and Hybrid Cloud

Let’s be honest - database in the cloud is either part of your very near term future or you’re already building database-driven cloud applications. Why not choose a database built from the ground up to exploit all the benefits of the cloud and delivers cloud database functionality on your terms and budget?   

  • Only database platform in the market with a true masterless architecture that supports running across all clouds and on-premise with no special administration or development needed
  • With functionality like advanced security, integrated analytics, search, multi-model capabilities (including graph!) there’s no need to cobble together lots of different and expensive services that you need from cloud providers

Database Modernization

Whether it’s platforms like the mainframe or legacy databases such as RDBMSs that fall short of meeting your application requirements, it’s time for your database strategy to evolve and support your next-generation business initiatives. Not only does DataStax provide a 21st-century database that is a hand-in-glove fit for your modern application checklist, but it also makes the move from outdated database software a cost-savings event.

  • Offloading mainframe data-related tasks to DataStax lets you take advantage of modern database innovations and architectures and save money in the process 

Case study to prove the efficiency

The Opportunity

Capital One needed to be able to significantly speed up its data processing and analysis in order to make much faster data-based decisions. It needed to quickly build a new, real-time reporting and analytics platform.

This new platform needed to have almost continuous availability with an uptime SLA of 99.99% and needed to be have extremely high throughput for same-day financial decision-making. It also needed to be able to scale linearly and reliably.

Capital One needed a distributed database that could handle multiple data sources and destinations and provide powerful reporting tools that allowed fast time to market and quick adaptability to thrive in the Right-Now Economy.

The Solution

Advanced Performance

DSE 6 offers double the performance of the previous version of DSE and has now been independently verified as being at least twice as fast as open source Apache Cassandra.

Apache Cassandra™

The open-source core of our technology and the greatness we are built on, Apache Cassandra offers power and flexibility like no other database.

Database Power

DataStax Enterprise, the leading distributed cloud database built on the best distribution of Apache Cassandra™ and designed for hybrid cloud.
