According to a new press release, “ScyllaDB announced the general availability release 1.3 of its revolutionary open source NoSQL database. A ground-breaking C++ implementation of the popular Apache Cassandra database, Scylla delivers the superior performance, high availability, horizontal scalability and low latency that organizations require for big data projects, high-volume ecommerce and AdTech applications, and Internet of Things (IOT) initiatives. Scylla delivers on the promise of big data by uniquely combining the functionality of Cassandra with the speed of a light key/value store.”
The release goes on, “Its performance advantages over other approaches include: 10X throughput of baseline Cassandra – more than 1,000,000 CQL operations per second per node; Sub 1msec 99% latency; 10X per-node storage capacity over Cassandra; Self-tuning database: zero configuration needed to max out hardware; Unparalleled high availability, native multi-datacenter awareness; Drop-in replacement for Cassandra – no additional scripts or code required.”
Avi Kivity, Chief Technology Officer at ScyllaDB, noted, “We have hardened our database over the course of the past year in order to deliver consistent performance over time with effortless admin… Based on the enthusiastic feedback we’ve received from early users of our product, we brought a number of significant new capabilities to this feature-rich release, including tighter integration with graph databases, improved support for Thrift, Date Tiered Compaction Strategy, Large Partitions, Docker, CQL tracing, and much more.”
