DataStax Docs

Documentation for configuring, upgrading, and deploying DataStax Enterprise, DSE OpsCenter, CQL, DataStax Drivers, and DataStax Studio.

Studio notebooks

  • Studio 6.7 only supports DataStax Enterprise 6.7.
  • Studio 6.0 only supports DataStax Enterprise 6.0.
  • Studio 2.0 only supports DataStax Enterprise 5.1 and 5.0.
  • Notebooks created in earlier versions are automatically upgraded when starting later versions.

Apache Cassandra maintenance window

  • Documentation for Apache Cassandra 3.0 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.

Upgrade to DSE drivers

  • While the DataStax drivers for Apache Cassandra drivers can connect to DSE 5.0 and later clusters, DataStax strongly recommends upgrading to the DSE drivers. The DSE drivers provide functionality for all DataStax Enterprise features.
