Talena and DataStax Partner to Deliver Simplified Big Data Availability Management

Press Release

Certified Talena Solution Now Supports Multiple Versions of Apache Cassandra


SANTA CLARA, CA–(Marketwired – September 22, 2015) – Cassandra Summit — On the heels of its launch last month, Talena, a pioneer in Big Data Availability Management, today announced a partnership with DataStax, the company that delivers Apache Cassandraâ„¢ to the enterprise, providing organizations flexible, always-on, secure, managed database solutions that accommodate today’s toughest big data workloads. As a technology partner, Talena augments DataStax Enterprise (DSE) with complementary modern data management processes such as granular backup and recovery, as well as test/dev management as applied to web-scale applications. Talena will be demonstrating its big data availability management solution for Apache Cassandra users at this week’s Cassandra Summit 2015, the biggest NoSQL conference in the world.


The DataStax database platform is based on the open source Apache Cassandra project and is used by leading companies including Adobe, eBay, Intuit, Netflix, Safeway and Target. Big Data technologies such as Cassandra have given rise to new types of applications across all industries, creating data environments and unique deployment models that legacy solutions simply can’t support.


“The Talena team has a deep understanding of organizations’ data availability management requirements, especially in the rapidly growing NoSQL market,” said Narayan Sundareswaran, vice president of business development, technology at DataStax. “We look forward to working with them to bring our respective solutions to DataStax Enterprise customers and the entire Cassandra community.”


The DataStax Partner Network Program is designed to increase adoption of DSE, the Apache Cassandra-based database used by more than 500 companies worldwide, including 30 percent of the Fortune 100.


“An organization’s data assets are increasingly fundamental to business operations, and DataStax Enterprise is a big part of this shift,” said Talena Founder and CEO Nitin Donde. “As Big Data applications grow in size and scope, companies need to rethink the data management architecture required to support their application SLA goals. The Talena solution offers Cassandra and DataStax Enterprise customers universal data availability across the full lifecycle of their applications.”


Built for Today’s Data Availability Management Operations

The first to focus on Big Data workloads, the Talena solution was developed to address a fundamentally different set of requirements for data availability management including petabyte-scale, diverse data formats and data-aware workflow processes. Talena delivers an entirely new architecture that overcomes the limitations inherent in traditional data management operations. Via the Talena software environment, companies can implement multiple workflows including test/dev management, backup and recovery, archiving and disaster recovery.

Hosted by DataStax, the Summit will have 10 tracks over two days, with more than 120 deep dive technical sessions.
