DataStax was built on the open source NoSQL database Apache Cassandra. Cassandra was initially developed internally at Facebook to handle large data sets across multiple servers, and was released as an Apache open source project in 2008. In 2010, Jonathan Ellis and Matt Pfeil left Rackspace, where they had worked with Cassandra, to launch Riptano in Austin, Texas. Ellis and Pfeil later renamed the company DataStax, and moved its headquarters to Santa Clara, California.

DataStax delivers the open, multi-cloud stack, purpose-built for modern data apps. DataStax helps organizations decrease total cost of ownership and accelerate their innovation speed. DataStax are huge believers in modern, cloud native technologies like Kubernetes; DataStax are making Cassandra ready for millions of developers through simple APIs; and DataStaxare committed to delivering the industry’s first and only open, multi-cloud serverless database: DataStax Astra DB.

The company went on to create its own proprietary version of Cassandra, a NoSQL database called DataStax Enterprise (DSE).Version 1.0, released in October 2011, was the first commercial distribution of the Cassandra database, designed to provide real-time application performance and heavy analytics on the same physical infrastructure. It grew to include advanced security controls, graph database models, operational analytics and advanced search capabilities.
