Learning from the Equifax breach I guess it should come as no surprise that the Equifax breach could have been prevented. This time it was Equifax but next time it could be you. While it’s fun to see someone else take the hit, the heat, and watch people mock the CIO’s education:
When it comes to monitoring a distributed platform, there are many ways to go about it. There are many tools and programs used to accomplish different monitoring tasks ranging from the operating system or disk statistics to database performance metrics. What we found is that users need an all-in-one document that covers these topics so they can reference it later when needed without having to dig through multiple documents.
mParticle and ScyllaDB attended The NoSQL & NewSQL Database Meetup at the AWS Loft in NYC. Yuan Ren from mParticle gave a nice presentation that explained their journey from Apache Cassandra to Scylla and how they process 50 billion monthly messages with full availability and performance.
Scylla & Spotinst – A Reliable and powerful combination Spot instances can save you a lot of cash but what if you have a stateful service such as a NoSQL database? The main challenge is that every node in the cluster must sometimes maintain its entire state (IP, Data, and other configurations). This blog describes how a Scylla cluster can be used on AWS’s EC2 Spot without losing consistency with the help of SpotInst’s prediction technology and advanced stateful features. What is Scylla Scylla is an open-source distributed NoSQL database. It was designed to be compatible with Apache Cassandra while […]
To get a better picture of how Apache Cassandra is used, we surveyed 70 expert Apache Cassandra users who actively use Apache Cassandra for in-production workloads. Their workloads represent more than 200 clusters running 600TB of combined data on Apache Cassandra.
Raphael S. Carvalho is a computer programmer here at ScyllaDB who loves open source software and kernel programming. He worked on the Syslinux project to bring new file system support and also worked on MultiFS to allow multiple file systems to co-exist. For his Scylla work, he has been mostly working on SSTable compaction handling and recently developed the support for the Time Window Compaction Strategy on Scylla. This strategy is a considerably better alternative to the DateTieredCompactionStrategy. Raphael has a passion for making products and solutions better with his programming experience. You can learn more about Raphael in his […]
Originally published on The New Stack on July 28th, 2017. Recently AWS unleashed a managed cache solution, Amazon DynamoDB Accelerator (DAX), in front of it’s database. This blog will discuss the pros and cons of external database caches.
This is a modified interview with Christopher Quinones, Project Lead, and Developer on Compose for JanusGraph, previously that was published on Compose.com Compose for JanusGraph is a fully managed, Apache TinkerPop-enabled, scalable graph database optimized for storing and querying highly-interconnected data modeled as millions or billions of vertices and edges. Graph databases are particularly adept at use cases such as fraud detection, counter-intelligence, behavior modeling, and social media or wherever complex interactions and networks exist. IBM Compose for JanusGraph uses Scylla for the backend, why did you select Scylla? How was your experience adopting it? JanusGraph continues to evolve as […]
We’ve spent the first quarter of 2017 researching how developers build a wide range of mission-critical solutions. In our effort to better understand how open source solutions contribute to applications built on Amazon Web Services (AWS), we surveyed 117 active developers on AWS who attended the 2017 AWS Summit in San Francisco about their NoSQL database adoption.
Amazon recently unveiled a new class of machines—the AWS i3 family. Targeted at I/O intensive applications and featuring up to 15TB of fast storage, these machines offer unprecedented power with a great balance between I/O and CPU. At a lower price than the previous i2 family, we expect the i3 family to become the default class for NoSQL workloads. This article will cover i3 instances and provide information about the status of Scylla support for the hardware. Although we don’t yet officially provide i3 AMIs, customers are already running them in production with positive results. Scylla’s native architecture takes advantage […]
