Over the past couple of months, we’ve released new versions of our C/C++ drivers for DataStax Enterprise (v1.6.0+) and Apache Cassandra (v2.10.0+). These releases fundamentally changed the internals of the C/C++ drivers and are the biggest releases for the driver since the initial 1.0.0 release. They included a complete refactor of the internal components and increased test coverage. The refactor has to lead to substantially improved performance, decreased resource utilization, and it has enabled us to better unit test internal components.

As a Solutions Engineer at DataStax, I often hear the question from new customers: how do I know that all of my data is loading correctly in my DataStax Enterprise (DSE) cluster? This is especially important when data governance is important or when DSE becomes the System of Record.

GraphQL has become more and more popular among developers to implement APIs (specially frontend developers) as it brings both simplicity and discoverability on the client side. But, what about server side? If you have already worked with Apache Cassandra™ you know that designing the proper data model is key. You also know that you need to know your queries very well in order to ensure performance. Is it possible to create an API on top of Apache Cassandra with GraphQL allowing only valid queries? Let's have a look.
