Documentation for configuring, upgrading, and deploying DataStax Enterprise, Apache Cassandra, DataStax OpsCenter, CQL, DataStax Drivers, DataStax Studio, and DataStax DevCenter.

DataStax no longer supports the DataStax Community version of Apache Cassandra™ or the DataStax Distribution of Apache Cassandra.

Documentation for Apache Cassandra 3.0 and Apache Cassandra 2.1 will be maintained until the corresponding DataStax Enterprise versions reach end-of-service-life (EOSL). When you download DataStax Enterprise, you will get the latest version of Cassandra with DataStax enhancements and fixes.
