DataStax Certified NoSQL Cassandra Clusters on Bare Metal Cloud

Mahesh Thiagarajan
Director, Product Management

At Oracle OpenWorld 2016, we announced the next generation infrastructure platform with Bare Metal Cloud servers that are 11.5x faster and 20 percent cheaper. Starting today, you can purchase Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Services through the Oracle Store and provision Bare Metal instances by using our Console, REST API, or SDKs. We are very excited to announce that now you can deploy DataStax Certified NoSQL Cassandra Clusters in a very simple and intuitive fashion on the Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Services.
