@aravinth_chakravarthyr_173918 DDAC is a certified production-ready distribution of Apache Cassandra that is 100% open-source compatible and includes support from experts at DataStax.

DSE includes an advanced distribution of Apache Cassandra that includes enterprise functionality not available in open-source C* including Advanced Security (includes LDAP & Kerberos authentication), Nodesync service (continuous repair in the background), and Advanced Performance (asynchronous thread-per-core architecture which provides up to 2x throughput compared to OSS C*). In addition to just a database, DSE also includes DSE Analytics (with Apache Spark), DSE Search (with Apache Solr) and DSE Graph (see DSE Advanced Functionality).

For more info and product comparison, see the DataStax Offerings page. Cheers!
