DataStax, the company that delivers Apache Cassandra™ to the enterprise, has announced the acquisition of Aurelius LLC, the innovators behind the open source graph database, Titan. As the leading experts in graph database technology, the Aurelius team will join DataStax to build DataStax Enterprise (DSE) Graph, adding graph database capabilities into DSE alongside Apache Cassandra, DSE Search and Analytics.
The addition of graph technology to DSE will empower enterprises with true 'multi-model' capabilities that deliver new levels of power and flexibility to transactional applications. With DataStax, customers have a single provider delivering these capabilities in a secure, always-on database platform that remains operationally simple when scaled in a single datacenter or across multiple datacenters and clouds.

"At DataStax, we understand that the nature of transactional applications has changed in today's radically connected and highly distributed world," said Billy Bosworth, CEO, DataStax. "Accordingly, we purpose built our unified database platform to offer businesses the capability to apply the right database technology to the appropriate use case. Graph capabilities on top of Cassandra's power and scale is an exciting step forward for our customers, and we are delighted to bring the brilliant graph minds at Aurelius to the DataStax team."

"We are seeing an increasing demand for a scalable graph database technology in many of the world's largest organizations," said Dr. Matthias Broecheler, Managing Partner, Aurelius. "Combining DataStax's engineering excellence in distributed database technology with Aurelius' graph expertise, we will have the ability to build a tightly integrated graph database that will easily scale both horizontally and vertically as business demands and use cases increase."
