In-memory compute platform GridGain has added Cassandra support in v1.6 of its GridGain Professional Edition.
As well as native support for Apache Cassandra, there is a new ODBC driver, deadlock-free transactions, and a new hosted web management console. Cassandra database users should see faster performance compared to disk-based Cassandra deployments plus transaction support. They may see an up to 1,000 times increase in query speed, claims the vendor. Users can use full ACID-compliant transactions to read/write data to/from a Cassandra database.
They can also use ANSI SQL-99 compliance to run ad hoc and structured queries with complete ODBC and JDBC support. GridGain also supports most SQL and NOSQL databases and Apache Hadoop. ®
