DataStax Authors "Dummies" Book - "Designing a Distributed Cloud Database For Dummies"

DataStax, powering the Right-Now Enterprise with the always-on, distributed cloud database built on Apache Cassandra, today announced the publishing and immediate availability of "Designing a Distributed Cloud Database For Dummies".

Authored by Patrick McFadin, VP of Developer Relations at DataStax, the book delves into how enterprises can exceed customer expectations via modern applications and modern data models that leverage distributed cloud database technology, and why traditional database technologies such as relational databases don't cut it in today's Right-Now Economy.

"The Right-Now Economy basically means what it says-your customers want their apps to function flawlessly and with 100% uptime and highly personalized, real-time interactions," McFadin said. "That can only be achieved with a distributed, cloud database designed for hybrid cloud and this book explains, in very understandable and user-friendly terms, how that is done."

The book discusses:
- Why you need distributed cloud databases
- The cloud database requirements for modern applications
- The importance of data autonomy
- Why traditional databases don't work for modern applications
- Moving beyond traditional databases and the power of multi-model databases

"There's what database management used to be, and then there's what it has necessarily become to meet the needs of today's extremely demanding customers," McFadin said. "This is really a primer on how to get from where you are today with your current technology to where you should already be with your database management, using distributed, multi-model databases made to create engaging, always-on applications."
