Overall Satisfaction with DataStax Enterprise

The design and development of new aircraft engines require large amounts of sensor data to be stored, managed, and queried. The availability of the data and the query performance is critical to the safety of people and equipment. Traditional RDBMS systems proved to be inadequate for the job as the volumes and velocity of information increased. We selected DataStax Enterprise for its high availability, and best-in-class write performance. There is a learning curve to be overcome, but in the end, the new system matched and exceeded expectations. As a result, the company has a new reliable platform to support the business needs for years in the future.

Performs well. It is difficult to master.
The support team was always there for us.
DataStax Enterprise's NoSQL database (Cassandra) shines where scalability is critical to success. Data write performance is best-of-class. However, be prepared to go through a steep learning curve. The data model and query options are difficult to master. It is not easy to find skilled people to design and support the database. It will take courage and dedication to implement the solution correctly in your organization. The bottom line is that DataStax will not be suitable for all use cases. Make sure you understand the limitations. Start small and grow as you learn. If you use it for the right reasons, it will serve you with excellent results.
