Scylla is a drop-in Apache Cassandra and Amazon DynamoDB alternative big data database that powers your applications with ultra-low latency and extremely high throughput.
We reimplemented Apache Cassandra from scratch using C++ instead of Java to increase the raw performance and utilization of modern multi-core servers and minimize the overhead to DevOps. We then added our Alternator API, enabling you to run your Amazon DynamoDB workloads anywhere and at a much lower cost.
Scylla Cloud easily outperforms AWS DynamoDB in a wide range of tests, at a lower cost, with no vendor lock-in.
Scylla Cloud is faster and costs less than Google Cloud BigTable. Scylla Cloud uses 1/10 the number of servers at BigTable to achieve the same performance.

Test Scylla Performance in Minutes.
Automatic failover and replication across multiple nodes and data-centers makes for reliable fault tolerance.
Written in C++ to squeeze every bit of performance from hardware and allow up to 1,000,000 read/write operations per node.
Auto-sharding, homogeneous servers, and native multi-datacenter implementation allow seamless linear scaling without compromising on application downtime or performance.
Apache Cassandra’s wire protocol, a rich polyglot of drivers, and integration with Spark, Presto, and Graph tools make for resource-efficient and performance-effective coding.
An open source database since day one, Scylla is backed by a growing community of contributors.
Workload conditioning provides an umbrella of dynamic scheduling algorithms to minimize database operation latency jitter and reduce compaction streaming and repair time.
C++ framework boosts effectiveness to capture up to 10x throughput over existing infrastructure, creating a powerful and efficient NoSQL database.
Fully automated and dynamic database tuning effectively manages internal resources, requires zero configuration, and enhances performance straight out of the box.
