“We’re consciously signalling that Cassandra is ready for mere mortals,” said Jonathan Ellis, who is the Apache vice president of Apache Cassandra project, jokingly referring to the amount administrative expertise needed to deploy previous versions of the software. “You don’t have to know as much as you did about the nuts and bolts” to operate the database, he added.

Performance & Stability at Scale

Hadapt’s patent-pending architecture brings the latest advances in relational database research to the Apache™ Hadoop™ platform.  By leveraging the MapReduce distributed computing framework, Hadapt provides cloud-ready fault tolerance, load balancing, and data replication, ensuring consistent performance in unpredictable computing environments such as the cloud.

Virtualized environments pose unique challenges for performing complex analytics on big data. The shared environment is economical, but unpredictable fluctuations in node performance and node availability results in poor performance for long queries. Restarting nodes or restarting queries is not the answer. Hadapt’s platform utilizes a patent-pending Adaptive Query Execution™ process to automatically load balance queries in virtualized environments.
