How the database reads and writes data

To manage and access data, it is important to understand how the DataStax Enterprise (DSE) database stores data. The hinted handoff feature plus conformance and non-conformance to the ACID (atomicity, consistency, isolation, durability) database properties are key concepts to understand reads and writes. In DataStax Enterprise, consistency refers to how up-to-date and synchronized a row of data is on all of its replicas.

Client utilities and application programming interfaces (APIs) for developing applications for data storage and retrieval are available through the DataStax drivers.
