Supported platforms

Supported operating systems, JRE/JDKs, and browsers for DataStax Enterprise, DataStax Studio, DSE OpsCenter, and DataStax Distribution of Apache Cassandra.

Attention: Be sure to check the support status for your platform. DataStax no longer supports an OS or JVM after standard support has ended.
The following platforms and versions are supported and tested by DataStax to work with DataStax products. Other platforms or versions may work, but have not been tested.
Note: DDAC is the acronym for DataStax Distribution of Apache Cassandra™.

Requirement for Uniform Licensing

All nodes in each cluster must be uniformly licensed to use the same subscription. For example, if a cluster contains 5 nodes, all 5 nodes within that cluster must be either DataStax Distribution of Apache Cassandra™, or all 5 nodes must be DataStax Enterprise. Mixing different subscriptions within a cluster is not permitted. The DataStax Advanced Workloads Pack may be added to any DataStax Enterprise (not DataStax Distribution of Apache Cassandra) cluster in an incremental fashion. For example, a 10-node DSE cluster may be extended to include 3 nodes of the Advanced Workloads Pack. “Cluster” means a collection of nodes running the software which communicate with one another using gossip. See Enterprise Terms.

Supported platforms for DataStax Enterprise 6.7, 6.0, 5.1, and DDAC

JREs and JDKs supported by DataStax products

DataStax recommends the latest build of a TCK Certified OpenJDK version 8 or supported Oracle JRE or JDK version 8.

Note: Starting with DSE 5.1.11 and 6.0.3, DataStax does more extensive testing on OpenJDK 8. This change is due to the end of public updates for Oracle JRE/JDK 8. See Oracle Java SE Support Roadmap.

DataStax Studio does not support DataStax Distribution of Apache Cassandra (DDAC).
