Apache Cassandra™ is exploding in organizations that need a massively scalable NoSQL database to power their modern transactional applications. What makes Cassandra the database of choice is its fully distributed architecture, combined with industry leading performance. Cassandra was built from the ground up with no single points of failure, making it the perfect solution for continuously available applications across multiple datacenters and the cloud.
DataStax was founded by Jonathan Ellis, the chairman of the Apache Cassandra project, and is committed to accelerating the growth of both the Apache Cassandra technology and its open source community. In addition, Cassandra is at the core of DataStax Enterprise, a complete big data platform for businesses running their applications in production.
