There was a Cambrian explosion of NoSQL databases just a few short years ago. Each had its own strengths and weaknesses, and none could genuinely call themselves a general purpose enterprise database. DataStax set out to change that. DataStax Enterprise, based on Apache Cassandra, now includes robust search, graph and analytics capabilities, enabling it to support more demanding use cases. In this episode of Pivotal Insights, Jeff and Dormain are joined by Gilbert Lau, Cloud and Big Data Evangelist at DataStax, to discuss the evolution of NoSQL databases.
