DataStax, the leading provider of database software for cloud applications, accelerates the ability of enterprises, government agencies, and systems integrators to power the exploding number of cloud applications that require data distribution across data centres and clouds, by using our secure, operationally simple platform built on Apache Cassandra.
Apache Cassandra is an open source distributed database management system designed to handle large amounts of data across many commodity servers, providing high availability with no single point of failure. Cassandra offers robust support for clusters spanning multiple data centres, with asynchronous masterless replication allowing low latency operations for all clients. Evolved from work at Google, Amazon and Facebook, Cassandra is used by leading companies such as Disney, IBM, New York Times, Hulu, Spotify and Twitter. The Chair of the Apache Cassandra Project is Jonathan Ellis, co-founder and CTO at DataStax.
