IBM discusses different storage backends for JanusGraph at Scylla Summit 2017

I was pleased to sit down with Chin Huang & Ted Chang of IBM who are speakers at the upcoming Scylla Summit 2017. Their talk will be one of many interesting talks at the Summit. Speakers are coming from all over the globe to speak about their experiences, use cases, and experiences with NoSQL technologies. Let’s begin the interview and learn more about what Chin and Ted will be presenting at the Summit.

Please tell us about yourselves and what you do at IBM?

We are software engineers at IBM Cognitive Technologies and Performance, focusing on software development and performance evaluation.

What will you be talking about at Scylla Summit 2017?

Share our performance test results and lessons learned, comparing Scylla as the storage backend for JanusGraph with Apache Cassandra and HBase.

What type of audience will be interested in your talk?

Performance engineers, data architects,  and IT/Ops.

Can you please tell me more about your talk?

JanusGraph, a highly scalable graph database solution, supports historically Cassandra and HBase as database backends. We decided to put Scylla in the mix, certainly searching for the best performing backend. We ran test scenarios that cover high volume reads and writes. In this talk, we will show you the performance results of Scylla vs others and also share our lessons learned during the performance evaluation.

How can the people get in touch with you?

The best way to get in touch with us is through GitHub (Chin, Ted).  That is where we spend most of our time interacting with people.

Thank you very much, Chin and Ted. We can not wait to see your talk in person and learn more. If you want to attend Scylla Summit 2017 and enjoy more talks like this one, please register here.

Scylla Summit is taking place in San Francisco, CA on October 24-25. Check out the current agenda on our web site to learn about the rest of the talks—including technical talks from the Scylla team, the Scylla road map, and a hands-on workshop where you’ll learn how to get the most out of your Scylla cluster.
