Solves critical data management needs unique to hybrid cloud

powering the Right-Now Enterprise with the always-on, distributed cloud
database built on Apache Cassandra™, unveiled new on-demand pricing
today. This new pricing option makes it easy for the company's
enterprise customers to take full advantage of public clouds with
maximum benefit from the data layer as their capacity, performance, and
workload needs change. The on-demand pricing is available for all DataStax
(DSE) customers, whether they deploy DSE in a cloud,
hybrid cloud, or on-premises environment.

"Our customers are rapidly deploying hybrid clouds for demanding new use
cases in customer experience and enterprise optimization," said Steve
Rowland, EVP and president at DataStax. "They need a cloud database
solution that is contextual, always-on, real-time, distributed, and
scalable--and they want all of that with maximum flexibility in terms of
capacity and workloads in addition to pricing. A majority of our
customers use DataStax Enterprise in a cloud or hybrid cloud environment
today. Our new on-demand pricing option makes it even easier for them to
scale new deployments rapidly, with confidence, and without worrying
about over- or under-committing for new applications."

DataStax's new on-demand pricing solves several problems for customers
who can now:

  • Get additional nodes of DataStax Enterprise without a salesperson
  • Use what they need without complex sizing exercises
  • Benefit from pricing based on daily usage
  • Flex up and down throughout the year, especially during burst periods
    such as holiday shopping, game or product launches, or other seasonal
