DataStax brings OpsCenter to Mac for Cassandra development

updated 10:15 pm EST, Wed February 1, 2012

Browser-based visual management tool

DataStax, which specializes in commercial tools to deploy and work with the open-source Apache Cassandra database management system (DBM), has updated its own browser-based visual management and monitoring system for Cassandra's linear-scalable P2P post-relational database system and introduced its first version of the Mac after polling its users and discovering demand for a Mac version.

Users can download the free DataStax Community Edition, which includes the latest edition of Cassandra, key utilities, the Cassandra Query Language interface and the free Community Edition of DataStax OpsCenter for Windows or Mac. CQL drivers for Java, PHP, Python and Ruby are also available, along with client libraries.

A step-by-step tutorial on getting Cassandra up and running on Intel-based Macs running OS X 10.5 or higher using OpsCenter is featured on the company's web site. A user experienced in working with Apache should be able to get the DBM set up within minutes. The "NoSQL" platform offers developers a method of creating applications that leverage big data systems better than competing DBMs, DataStax says.

The company charges for the Enterprise Edition of the tools, which adds real-time analytics through multiple services such as Hadoop and Pig, production support, workload management, hot fixes and quarterly service packs and more.
