MongoDB Atlas is a database as a service that makes it easy to deploy, manage, and scale MongoDB. So you can focus on innovation, not operations. Brought to you in partnership with MongoDB.

The final release of Cassandra's major 2.0 update came today, and Jonathan Ellis of DataStax has the best primer you'll find for understanding all of the new features:

The headlining features in 2.0 are lightweight transactions, CQL enhancements, and triggers. But 2.0 also features a lot of internal optimizations and improvements!

-- Jonathan Ellis, DataStax CTO, Co-Founder

On the same day as the release, Cassandra also surpassed Teradata and became 10th ranked  in DB-Engines.com's overall database rankings.

MongoDB Atlas is the best way to run MongoDB on AWS — highly secure by default, highly available, and fully elastic. Get started free. Brought to you in partnership with MongoDB.
