DataStax announced the release of DataStax Enterprise 5.0
June 2016 by Coline Magne
DataStax announced the release of DataStax Enterprise (DSE) 5.0 and DataStax OpsCenter 6.0, to provide enterprises a comprehensive and operationally simple data management layer.
The unique, always-on architecture of DataStax Enterprise is based on Apache Cassandra™. DSE 5.0, including OpsCenter 6.0, and the recently announced DataStax Enterprise Graph, will be available for download on June 28, 2016 here.
Multi-Model Database Delivering Real-Time Value at Epic Scale
DataStax Enterprise 5.0 offers a certified version of Cassandra 3.0 and advanced functionality designed to accelerate the creation of intelligent and compelling data-intensive applications. DSE delivers a full multi-model platform with support for tabular, key-value, JSON, and graph models along with built-in workload management that enables analytics, search, and in-memory operations within the same database. Additionally, DSE 5.0 is the only operational database able to scale linearly in excess of 1,000 nodes with no single point of failure and is capable of providing real-time active-everywhere replication across numerous datacenters and cloud environments.
DSE 5.0 is a comprehensive multi-model database solution capable of understanding data in real-time and includes:
DSE Graph: the only scalable real-time graph database built for cloud applications that need to manage complex data with many relationships. DSE Graph delivers continuous uptime along with predictable performance and scale for modern systems dealing with complex and constantly changing data, while remaining operationally simple to manage.
DSE Advanced Replication: specifically designed to support today’s IoT and retail applications that need to replicate data within hub-and-spoke and similar topologies.
Advanced server automation: simplifies data management via DSE Tiered Storage, which automatically moves data to its appropriate storage tier based on age, and DSE Multi-Instance, which makes it cost efficient and easy to run multiple copies of DSE on larger machines.
Advanced analytics and search: includes an updated version of Apache Spark™ to enable increased speed for streaming data, enhanced connectivity with external Spark clusters, and faster enterprise search operations with Apache Solr™.
Enterprise Database Management for Cloud Applications
DataStax OpsCenter 6.0 is the web-based visual management and monitoring solution for DSE and provides what’s needed to intelligently manage and monitor large scale, mission critical systems. OpsCenter has integrated functionality for monitoring, tuning, provisioning, backup and security management, and not only reduces operational and hardware costs but also dramatically increases overall operations productivity.
DataStax OpsCenter 6.0 enhancements include:
A new Lifecycle Management (LCM) component that delivers enterprise-class provisioning capabilities for creating and administering widely-distributed database clusters, whether on premise, in the cloud, or in hybrid public/private cloud environments.
Full management and monitoring support for DSE Graph.
Improved alerting including support for SNMP, which helps integrate OpsCenter with other infrastructure management systems.
Export of monitoring metrics to third party monitoring tools including Graphite.
Simplifying Development for Cloud Applications
The release of DSE 5.0 and OpsCenter 6.0 also includes DataStax Studio 1.0, a new web-based visual development tool to help developers visually interact with DSE Graph. DataStax Studio lets anyone easily write graph database queries and visualize graph data output in a variety of formats.
In addition, a new suite of enterprise drivers is being made available for all popular development languages (e.g., Java, Python, C#, C++, Ruby, Node.js, PHP), with every driver fully supporting each enterprise component of DSE’s multi-model platform. For example, a Java developer can use the single DSE Java driver to write secured CQL, DSE Analytics/Spark, DSE Search/Solr, and DSE Graph/Gremlin queries against a DSE cluster.
DSE 5.0, including OpsCenter 6.0, will be available for download on June 28, 2016.
DSE Graph will be sold as an option to either a DSE Standard or DSE Max subscription and will be available for download on June 28, 2016.
