DataStax Enterprise 4.7 new features  

DataStax Enterprise 4.7 introduces a number of new features and enhancements:

DataStax Enterprise

A production-ready version of Cassandra 2.1 built for enterprise deployments, which has been certified and optimized by DataStax for maximum performance and uptime.

Support for Oracle Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE) 8 and OpenJDK 7.

DSE Analytics

Automatic high availability for Spark analytics.

Support for Spark MLlib common machine learning (ML) functionality.

Integrate Spark SQL with JDBC (thriftserver).

Production certification of Spark 1.2.

DSE Search

Live indexing increases indexing throughput, enables queries to be made against recently indexed data, reduces latency, and works with all Solr functionality.

Fault tolerant, adaptive, distributed search: queries can transparently handle up to RF-1 node failures, and adapt themselves to changes in data consistency and cluster health.

DSE Analytics and Search integration allows analytics jobs to be performed using search queries. This provides finer-grained queries of analytics workloads and better performance.

Improved paging (cursors) support.

Production certification of Solr 4.10.

DSE Advanced Security

Off-server encryption key management using KMIP (Key Management Interoperability Protocol).

DSE Management Services

Support for incremental repair in the OpsCenter Repair Service and the Cassandra nodetool. A faster and less intensive Repair Service improves maintenance of cluster data consistency.

Support for Spark performance objects in the Performance Service.

DSE In-Memory

DSE In-Memory improvements expand the amount of data that can be maintained in memory and allow faster read operations on larger volumes of transactional data.
