DataStax Bulk Loader

Download
DataStax Bulk Loader is an efficient, flexible, easy-to-use command line utility that excels at loading, unloading, and counting data. It gets data in and out of the database faster than any other copy commands and community tools. Use it with JSON or CSV files to jump start your application development.

Load

Load from JSON or CSV files to the database.

Unload

Unload data stored in the database to JSON or CSV files.

Count

Quickly count the number of rows in a given table.

DataStax Apache Kafka® Connector

Download
The DataStax Apache Kafka Connector automatically takes records from Kafka topics and writes them to a DataStax database. This sink connector is deployed in the Kafka Connect framework and removes the need to build a custom solution to move data between these two systems.

Flexible

Flexible mapping to allow reads from many Kafka topics and writes to many DataStax tables, fits nicely to the common denormalization pattern used with Cassandra..

Performance

Created by the authors of the DataStax Drivers for Apache Cassandra and uses best practices for database writes, resulting in fast data movement.

Simple

You have to write zero lines of code if you use the connector to ingest from Kafka to a DataStax database.

DataStax DevCenter

Version
Download
DataStax DevCenter is a free visual schema and query environment to create and run Cassandra Query Language (CQL) statements against Apache Cassandra and DataStax Enterprise. Note this tool is End of Service Life and no longer under active development. DataStax customers should use DataStax Studio.

Graph Loader

Version
Download
DSE Graph Loader is a customizable, highly tunable command line utility for loading graph datasets into DSE Graph from various input sources. It is built to load datasets containing hundreds of millions (10^8) of vertices and billions (10^9) of edges. DSE Graph Loader is efficient, using parallel loading and persistent cache to store vertices, provided a sufficient machine is used to run the program.

Multiple Sources Available

Data can be loaded from CSV files, JSON files, delimited text (CSV with a header line to identify the fields), text parsed by regular expressions, and binary Gryo files.

Preparation

Reads entire input data to check for graph schema conformity. Suggests graph schema updates, or if enabled, changes graph schema. Supplies statistics about how much data will be added to graph when loaded.

Vertex Loading

Adds or retrieves all of the vertices in the input data and caches them locally to speed up subsequent edge loading.

Edge and Property Loading

Adds all edges and properties from the input data to the graph.

CQLSH

Version
Download
CQLSH is a command line shell for interacting with your database through CQL (Cassandra Query Language). This tool provides a useful interface for administrators and developers to access the database and issue CQL commands.

The versions of CQLSH correspond to a DataStax database version. Choose the CQLSH version that is compatible with your DataStax database.

Prerequisites

CQLSH requires Python 2.7.

DataStax Enterprise Drivers

Version
Download
DataStax Drivers for DataStax Enterprise (DSE Drivers) are the client libraries for app developers creating solutions using DataStax Enterprise on-premises or in the cloud. The drivers have all of the functionality of the DataStax Drivers for Apache Cassandra as well as additional features for DSE-specific features, including Advanced Security and DSE Graph. For details, reference the Application Developer Guide for general driver concepts and the individual driver documentation for API specifics of each language.

Popular Programming Languages

DataStax supports C/C++, C#, Java, Node.js, PHP, Python, Ruby, JDBC and ODBC drivers.

Cluster Awareness

The drivers are tightly coupled with the server and they intelligently route and load balance queries, retry when necessary and automatically reconnect after a restart.

Synchronous and Asynchronous APIs

The drivers are built to support high volumes of concurrent requests and offer both synchronous and asynchronous APIs.

Advanced Workloads

The DSE Drivers additionally support DataStax Graph traversals, Advanced Security LDAP/AD/Kerberos, and DSE Geospatial Types.

DataStax Drivers For Apache Cassandra

Version
The DataStax Drivers for Apache Cassandra ( OSS Drivers ) are the client libraries for application developers creating solutions using Apache Cassandra on-premises or in the cloud. The OSS Drivers can also be used with DataStax products. For details, reference the Application Developer Guide for general driver concepts and the individual driver documentation for API specifics of each language.

ODBC/JDBC Drivers

Version
Download
To connect with individual databases, JDBC (the Java Database Connectivity API) requires drivers for each database. The JDBC driver gives out the connection to the database and implements the protocol for transferring the query and result between client and database.

Since the Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) is such a prolific framework to enable Business Intelligence (BI) tools, DataStax provides a set of ODBC drivers to enable these use cases. For reference on ODBC drivers check out this blog.
