Virtual Workshop: How to Test and Benchmark Database Clusters

The Fastest NoSQL Database

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.


The Fastest Distributed Database

ScyllaDB vs. DynamoDB Benchmark

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.

Benefits of Using Scylla’s Big Data Database

A true NoSQL database for the most demanding applications

Low and Consistent Latency

Lockless implementation and an independent memory management stack remove the inefficient reliance on JVM or Linux page cache to deliver consistently low latency.

Always-On Availability

Automatic failover and replication across multiple nodes and data-centers makes for reliable fault tolerance.

10x Higher Throughput

Written in C++ to squeeze every bit of performance from hardware and allow up to 1,000,000 read/write operations per node.

Highly Scalable

Auto-sharding, homogeneous servers, and native multi-datacenter implementation allow seamless linear scaling without compromising on application downtime or performance.

Easy to Use

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.

Community Backed

An open source database since day one, Scylla is backed by a growing community of contributors.

Compaction, Streaming and Repair Solved

Workload conditioning provides an umbrella of dynamic scheduling algorithms to minimize database operation latency jitter and reduce compaction streaming and repair time.

Optimum Total Cost of Ownership

C++ framework boosts effectiveness to capture up to 10x throughput over existing infrastructure, creating a powerful and efficient NoSQL database.

Auto Tuning

Fully automated and dynamic database tuning effectively manages internal resources, requires zero configuration, and enhances performance straight out of the box.
