Uniting the seemingly conflicting values of fast data access and deep analysis, open-source software company DataStax is developing a package that will combine its Cassandra non-relational database with Apache Hadoop data process framework, the company announced Wednesday.
The distribution, to be called Brisk, combines low-latency data storage and retrieval with the ability to do in-depth analysis of that data, said Matt Pfeil, CEO and co-founder of DataStax, formerly called Riptano.
Cassandra has been traditionally used by Web 2.0 companies that require a fast and scalable way to store simple data sets, while Hadoop has been used for analyzing vast amounts of data across many servers.
