Introducing DataStax Managed Cloud
DataStax is focused on making powerful data management available to customers who want to take advantage of new technology options in an always-on, cloud-based, right-now economy. DataStax Managed Cloud eliminates the time spent on data management operations and allows customers to focus on their core business. DataStax Managed Cloud also provides customers with deployment flexibility in achieving real-time data management at scale in the cloud.
Key DataStax Managed Cloud benefits include:
- Focus on business innovation by allowing organizations to offload operations to DataStax, simplifying data management and reducing risk within an environment managed by experts. DataStax Managed Cloud lets customers easily scale data management as their business expands.
- Time-to-market acceleration on a single underlying data layer that can run both on-premises and on public clouds, which requires no re-write of applications against every cloud provider’s proprietary data services and allows organizations to create APIs and micro-services architectures for a consistent data layer
- Choice and flexibility to support hybrid architecture needs by extending your data management platform to fit your hybrid cloud architectures, span or migrate across infrastructure models with 100% compatibility while avoiding cloud vendor lock-in by retaining data autonomy. Customers also have the option to use the DSE Operations Service to increase operational effectiveness of their own private or public cloud environment of DSE.
"We have used DataStax Enterprise to provide the distributed, responsive and intelligent foundation we need to build and run cloud applications," said Gene Stevens, CTO and Co-Founder, ProtectWise. "We see DataStax Managed Cloud offering flexibility to organizations across all industries who want to leverage a fully-managed database in order to focus on simplifying operations, driving innovation and achieving a faster time to market."
