Hands-On -Active-everywhere database for hybrid cloud from DataStax

May 1 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

DataStax is the top provider of the only active-everywhere database for hybrid cloud. Their flagship offering, DataStax Enterprise (DSE), is a unified data layer of database, search, and analytics built on Apache Cassandra™. It is the only hybrid cloud data management layer that allows enterprises to meet the contextual, always-on, real-time, distributed, and scalable requirements of Right-Now Economy applications.

Apache Cassandra, the foundation of DSE, is a distributed database that delivers the high availability, performance, and linear scalability today’s most demanding applications require. It offers operational simplicity and effortless replication across cloud service providers, data centers, and geographies, and it can handle petabytes of information and thousands of concurrent operations per second across hybrid cloud environments.

During this presentation, Burt Wagner, Solutions Engineer with DataStax, will describe the use cases for which Apache Cassandra™ and DSE are suited, go over the basic architecture of both Cassandra and DSE, and show the basics of how a database is created and queried. The discussion will continue with an introduction to the other facets of DSE: integration with Apache Solr™, Apache Spark™, and conclude with the basics of a DSE Graph database. Sections will include demonstrations as well.

Be sure to bring your laptops and download the Datastax so you can do some exercises during the Meetup.
