EMEA subsidiary to be run from base in London

Big data platform provider DataStax, which helped Netflix determine the likely popularity of its first proprietary series House of Cards, has opened a London Office to help it keep up with demand for its services in EMEA.

John Glendenning, vice president and general manager for EMEA at DataStax told Cloud Pro: “This is a full subsidiary – we are not just dipping a toe in the water and is based on our real success to date, including 400 per cent growth last year and having 20 of the Fortune 100 as customers.

“There is real demand in this industry and the reason we are coming here is the market, both the Cassandra community and customers looking to use the platform, demands our support and a presence here.”

The company, which integrates Cassandra, Apache Hadoop and Apache Solr data tools into a single and scalable big data platform, has also announced the release of version three of its DSE enterprise product.

According to DataStax, DSE 3.0 features internal and external authentification, transparent data encryption, data auditing, secured client-to-node transport and easy GRANT/REVOKE object permission.

“DSE 3.0 really is the only product in this category that delivers enterprise grade security,” Glendenning claimed.

Additionally, DSE 3.0 is also architected to securely manage real-time, analytic and enterprise search data within one database cluster, which the company claims will enable organisations to quickly search, manage and scale massive amounts of data.
