Building an Apache Cassandra™ based application? Step one - spin up a database. That used to be an uber ops-headache, but DataStax Apache Cassandratm as a Service (CaaS) makes it quick and painless. This unit shows you how.

CaaS lets you easily and quickly spin up an Apache Cassandra™ database without all the headaches and complexity of building your own database from scratch. This learning unit walks you through the steps to create a database quickly, so you can get on to developing your app.

Use the exercise as a tutorial - it walks you through how to create a database using CaaS. To see how easy it is, click on the Exercises tab.

DSE GraphFrames are great for performing bulk mutations. When you need to insert, update or delete a large number of vertices, edges, and properties, you can use DSE GraphFrames for the best efficiency. That includes bulk loading an existing dataset into DataStax Enterprise Graph initially. In this unit, you will learn about bulk mutations with DSE GraphFrames.

In this unit, we will introduce some methods of the original GraphFrame API from Spark. We will work on the same examples that we also used in our presentation called Using Gremlin with DSE GraphFrames so that you can easily compare Gremlin and GraphFrame APIs.

In this unit, you will be introduced to DSE GraphFrames. DSE GraphFrames is an alternative OLAP engine for DataStax Enterprise Graph. It is designed around our DataStax Enterprise Analytics offering and it enables a unique way of interacting with DataStax Enterprise Graph using various Spark APIs and tools.

Welcome to the Graph Analytics with DataStax Enterprise Graph course. Graph analytics is about delivering value from your graph data by combining and applying well-known analysis steps into a data analysis workflow, with the goal of doing data-driven decision making, information discovery, graph exploration, and all kinds of ad-hoc analysis.
