The partnership will enable Datapipe to securely dissect and analyze massive sets of data in real-time regardless of cloud environment by removing complexity so clients can focus on core business goals.
“Web, mobile, and Internet of Things applications are generating huge distributed data sets for enterprises to manage, oftentimes spread across multiple data centers and clouds,” said Matt Rollender, VP, Cloud Strategy, DataStax. “In order to remain relevant and ensure success in today’s business environment, enterprises require a secure, always-on, managed database platform solution that can help them focus on running their business, not their database infrastructure.”

By integrating DSE with Datapipe’s Database Management service, Datapipe will provide users with a fully managed database service offering for enterprise-grade Apache Cassandra, successfully transitioning them from test environments to full-service deployments. Building on its expertise designing and architecting database solutions based on individual client needs, Datapipe will have the ability to operationally manage DSE on a variety of environments including managed deployments on the cloud, such as Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure, or Datapipe’s Stratosphere Hosted Private Cloud. Datapipe also supports dedicated DSE managed service solutions for enterprises with specific performance or security requirements deployed via its global data centers spanning three continents.
