DataStax unveils Vector: AIOps for Apache Cassandra

DataStax announced the private beta of Vector, an AIOps service for Apache Cassandra. Vector continually assesses the behavior of a Cassandra cluster to provide developers and operators with automated diagnostics and advice, helping them be consistently successful with Cassandra and DataStax Enterprise (DSE) clusters. Vector provides recommendations with detailed background knowledge and offers multiple ways to fix a problem. With this embedded knowledge base, Vector is able to analyze individual nodes, compare behavior to other nodes in the cluster, and serve up recommendations, such as: Cassandra and operating system configuration, schema design, and Cassandra performance and query techniques. Vector features:

  • Automated expert advice – Proactively identifies current and potential issues to help developers and operators solve problems quickly. Automated advice provides contextual learning with background knowledge to build skills.
  • Continuous updates – Rules and advice are continuously updated, deployed to SaaS and on-premises applications, and automatically applied to clusters.
  • Hands-off management – Advanced visualizations of system usage with insightful charting to understand tables, keyspaces, and nodes. Vector helps developers and operators see and understand how the cluster is performing and its configuration without having to log into Cassandra nodes.
  • Cassandra skills development – Helps strengthen Cassandra skills and knowledge by providing detailed advice and recommendations. Vector helps to reduce unexpected and unplanned items.

Marketing, big data, and content

“Content” in this context means unstructured data. The need to manage unstructured data is one of the main reasons big data technologies exist – the other being the need for dealing with scale and speed. This is why it is important for us to cover at our conferences. Not every company needs to build new infrastructures around Hadoop-like technologies… yet. But marketers need to manage the mostly unstructured content that is part of their world, and also process and manage the more structured analytic data that will rapidly become “big” for even small organizations, so big data technologies need to be on marketing organizations’ radar as they continue to increase their expertise and spending on technology. See yesterday’s post on Why marketing is the next big money sector in technology.
