DataStax Enterprise (DSE) for PCF

Always-On Data Platform for Cloud Applications

DataStax Enterprise (DSE) for PCF provides developers the ability to deploy a fully-configured Apache Cassandra™ cluster.

Developer Self-Service Access to Clusters

Increase developers' productivity by providing self-service access to an existing DataStax Enterprise cluster, running externally from Pivotal Cloud Foundry. DataStax is also developing an option for developers to self-provision a dedicated DataStax Enterprise cluster.

Shift Focus to Critical, High-Value Services

Improve IT's operational efficiency by delegating the provision of DataStax Enterprise clusters to developers so IT resources can focus on more critical, high-value services such as routine platform upgrade and maintenance, or any platform-wide issue resolutions.

Built-in Database Analytics and Search

DataStax Enterprise makes it easy for teams to build and manage an entire integrated stack including Search, Analytics, and Graph. Our always-on data platform helps Microsoft, Sony, ING, and hundreds of others successfully and quickly bring their cloud applications to market.

How it Works

Unmanaged Service Broker. Connects to an externally managed database, for example, unmanaged Service Broker for your existing DSE. The new unmanaged service broker enables developers to create access, on their own, to an external DSE cluster. Developers can now share the same DSE cluster to achieve economies of scale when a dedicated cluster is not required. Different service plans can be created to correspond different user roles and associated permissions such as read or read-and-write access, etc. on objects inside DSE. This is a crucial feature when more than one developers are sharing a single DSE cluster from resource allocation and security standpoints.

Pivotal Cloud Foundry - Managed (on-demand) Service Broker for DSE. Ask about early access to this service. The managed service broker implements the Pivotal Cloud Foundry service broker APIs as HTTP/HTTPS endpoints. It is an official and standard way to integrate third-party technologies to the Pivotal Cloud Foundry platform. The create-service interface implementation creates a new DSE cluster on demand using BOSH. BOSH is the Cloud Foundry orchestration tool for installing and managing software and virtual machines. The entire lifecycle of a DSE cluster is taken care of by BOSH, from provisioning, running to decommissioning. Resources used by a cluster will be returned to a centralized resource pool upon termination. This broker makes transient DSE cluster possible. It is a true enabler for continuous integration when a short-lived DSE cluster is all you need.
