AWS re:Invent 2016

We’re thrilled to be a sponsor at AWS re:Invent 2016 in Las Vegas! The conference is sold out and the Sands Expo is jam-packed and buzzing with excitement as the world’s largest gathering of the AWS community gets underway.

ScyllaDB booth

We’re looking forward to talking to members of the AWS community about their projects and requirements as they, like most developers, need applications that can manage extreme volumes of data, requiring lower latency, higher throughput, and increased performance.
ScyllaDB, a Cassandra-write-from-scratch, leverages all the good things from Cassandra together with state-of-the-art implementation in C++ and kernel bypass techniques which lead to 10X the performance.

Interested in DynamoDB or generic DBaaS? We have an answer for you!
While it’s relatively simple to kick start a pre-installed AMI of ScyllaDB cluster and maintain it, we are proud to say that there are already two managed services from IBM’s Compose and Instraclustr, and we expect more ScyllaDB DBaaS options to land in the future.

If you’re at re:Invent be sure to stop by Booth 2719 near the Partner Pavilion –
Check out the live demo with 3×36 core machine, achieving 3M OPS. We’re giving out our popular sea monster t-shirts, collectable sea monster stickers, and you can enter for a chance to win an Oculus Rift, because what’s a conference without cool swag?

Hope to see you there!
