Progress and DataStax Partner to Provide Enterprise Data Integration for Cassandra

Progress and DataStax Partner to Provide Enterprise Data Integration for CassandraProgress Software (NASDAQ: PRGS) is a global software company simplifying the process of creating and managing applications on premise or in the cloud on any device who recently announced a partnership with DataStax, the company that delivers Apache Cassandra.

The partnership will provide customers with enterprise-specific data connectivity and data integration for Cassandra. Apache Cassandra is an open source distributed NoSQL database management platform that is popular among developers who are managing high volumes of data distributed across many servers with no single point of failure.

The partnership was triggered by the overwhelming demand from customers from both entities involved for a standardized solution that allows Cassandra to integrate with processes and platforms such as business intelligence, advanced analytics, data integration, and ETL. This decreases the integration time, reduces the development, and allows the re-purposing of skill sets with the database teams.

The Progress® DataDirect® for Cassandra driver, currently in beta, is architected to normalize data while delivering the highest performance available. Other market solutions take the approach of flattening the data, an architectural shortcut that complicates BI and can result in data loss. With the DataDirect driver, data is appropriately mapped between SQL and NoSQL with zero data loss. And because users of Cassandra are often dealing with massive volumes of data, the Progress DataDirect driver performance advantage ensures it can be processed with the velocity demanded by systems that operate at cloud-scale.
