Microsoft and DataStax tie up Cassandra on Azure deal as new Titan graph database rolls out

It's big day for Cassandra firm DataStax, with its database offering now on Microsoft Azure, plus the release of the Titan graph database.

After a year's technical collaboration, Microsoft and DataStax have today unveiled a tie-up that puts the distributed database firm's enterprise Apache Cassandra offering on the Azure cloud computing platform.

The two companies say DataStax Enterprise on Microsoft Azure will help developers create and manage internet-of-things, web and mobile apps across public and private clouds.

On top of the Microsoft deal, DataStax is also launching the Titan 1.0 graph database, developed from its February acquisition of Aurelius, along with the technical preview of Cassandra 3.0 with its new storage engine, and DataStax Enterprise 4.8, which features support for Docker and Spark 1.4.

DataStax CEO Billy Bosworth said the partnership between Microsoft and a company offering an open-source database, written in Java that runs primarily on Linux in production might seem surprising.

"It's been a very interesting shift dealing with Microsoft in this era of Azure, where they've opened their aperture to very non-traditional Microsoft technologies," he said.

"The bottom half of this relationship is on our technical teams, which are working intimately and have been for about a year on making sure the Azure experience can deliver all the things that our customers are going to need.

On Tuesday 18th April, Prime Minister Theresa May called a snap general election for 8th June, taking the nation by surprise.
