Subject Re: Need company to support Cassandra on Windows
Date Wed, 28 Oct 2015 17:51:05 GMT
I was in discussions with Datastax to license DSE/support, however I was
told Windows won't be production supported by Datastax by Jan-Mar. If no
company supports Cassandra on Windows in production, especially Datastax,
then it's hard to rationalize that it's ready or can/should be relied on in
production.
