Allegro Group Discusses how ScyllaDB Addresses Apache Cassandra’s Problems at ScyllaDB Summit 2017


Allegro Group ScyllaDB Summit

At ScyllaDB Summit 2017, we are pleased to have Lukasz Pachciarek and Szymon Szymanski of Allegro Group give a talk about NoSQL technologies. If you have not registered yet, you will be missing out on a wide array of interesting topics from experts in the field.  Let’s now explore what Lukasz and Szymon will be presenting at the Summit.

Please tell us about yourself and what you do at Allegro Group?

I have over 15 years of experience in databases and Szymon has almost 15 years in a system administrator role. We work for Allegro, the biggest e-commerce platform in Central Europe. For the last 4 years, we’ve been managing almost 20 Apache Cassandra clusters running on over 200 LXC containers.

What will you be talking about at ScyllaDB Summit 2017?

Apache Cassandra isn’t perfect and ScyllaDB seems to be the solution to some of the major Apache Cassandra problems. After visiting the first ScyllaDB Summit, we decided to do some practical tests to see how ScyllaDB performs in our environment.

What type of audience will be interested in your talk?

System and database administrators, developers, and managers.

Can you please tell me more about your talk?

Our main priority is to have predictable and low response times. The tests included not only insert and select operations performance but also common administration tasks (repairs, adding/removing nodes, cleanups). Based on the results, we created a possible “hardware reduction plan” for our environment saying how many Apache Cassandra nodes can be replaced with a single ScyllaDB node.

Where can we learn more information about your talk?

These are our internal tests that have not been published.

How can the people get in touch with you?

The best way to get in touch with us is through LinkedIn.

Thank you very much, Lukasz and Szymon. We can not wait to see your talk in person and learn more. If you want to attend ScyllaDB Summit 2017 and enjoy more talks like this one.

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