Recently a customer asked for advice on storing a large number of XML documents in DataStax Enterprise. Though each XML document will be just a few kilobytes in size, there will be many billions of them. Multiple fields inside each XML document must be indexed and searchable in real time.
I have come across this and similar use cases a few times as a Solutions Engineer for DataStax, and indeed we are an excellent database platform for building a large, distributed, searchable document store. So in turn I created the DataStax XML Demo to show one way to store, index, and search XML documents with DataStax Enterprise. Please check out the GitHub repository and write me with your thoughts and questions.
