DataStax announced yesterday that it has tested its DataStax Enterprise – the company’s big data platform built on Apache Cassandra – on the Google Compute Engine.
DataStax Enterprise was designed to manage real time, analytic and enterprise search data, all in the same database cluster. By combining DataStax’s offering and the Google Compute Engine, businesses are able to deploy their applications on Google’s powerful cloud platform.
“Google Compute Engine makes running DataStax Enterprise in the cloud easier and more reliable than ever before,” explained David Kloc, senior vice president, global business development, DataStax. “Our platform provides best-in-class performance consistency, and its breakthrough infrastructure enables our customers to predictably scale their databases’ speed and efficiency.”
Google’s Compute Engine just recently became available to all developers. Since then, DataStax and Google engineers have worked in collaboration to test the scalability and performance of online applications built on the DataStax Enterprise with the Google Compute Engine.
According to DataStax, the in-depth testing showed strong results for situations involving the need for operational stability, robustness during reboot and maximized disk performance.
Chris Rimer, Global Head of Partner Business, Google Cloud Platform, commented: “DataStax Enterprise and their integration with Google Compute Engine can help deliver a reliable and high-performance experience for our customers.”
