A new press release states, “ScyllaDB, the real-time big data database company, kicked off its two-day Scylla Summit by announcing a major release of its database, Scylla Open Source 3.0. The company also previewed Scylla support for concurrent OLTP and OLAP, an industry first that enables simultaneous transactional and analytical processing. This release marks a significant milestone, as the company surpasses feature parity with Apache Cassandra, the popular open source NoSQL database. As a drop-in replacement for Apache Cassandra with as much as 10 times better performance, Scylla Open Source has added production-ready capabilities much anticipated by the NoSQL community, while introducing ground-breaking new features that improve utilization and minimize operational overhead.”
The release continues, “Scylla Open Source 3.0 features a close-to-the-hardware design that makes optimal use of modern servers. Written from the ground-up in C++ to provide significant improvements to throughput, latency and administration, Scylla delivers scale-up performance of more than 1,000,000 IOPS per node, scales out to hundreds of nodes, and consistently achieves a 99% tail latency of less than 1 millisecond. ‘Migrating our Cassandra clusters to Scylla has always made sense in terms of reducing our hardware footprint, getting our latencies predictably lower and cutting the time we used to spend tuning the database,’ said Ho Kim, Leader of Cloud Business at Samsung SDS ‘Now we’re seeing Scylla take its product beyond what we can do with Cassandra, which is really exciting for our teams’.”
