Big data is a term that is used to refer to data that is too large for traditional Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMS). Data that is too big for Oracle RAC, IBM DB2, MySQL, Postgres, or Microsoft SQL Server.

DataStax Enterprise (DSE) is ideal for those big data solutions that satisfy the acronym CARDS:

  • Contextual
  • Always on
  • Realtime
  • Distributed
  • Scalable

DSE is based upon proprietary versions of Apache Cassandra, Apache Spark, Apache SOLR, and a closed source graph database.DSE is based upon proprietary versions of Apache Cassandra, Apache Spark, Apache SOLR, and a closed source graph database.

We also have extensive experience working with hosted MongoDB instances on both Atlas and Heroku. MongoDB is nice for non-structured data, e.g. json.
