ScyllaDB Cloud Updates for January 2020 

ScyllaDB Cloud is a fully managed Database as a Service (NoSQL DBaaS) from ScyllaDB. ScyllaDB Cloud runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS) I3 instances which, when coupled with the performance of ScyllaDB Enterprise, enables scalable and performant real-time applications. ScyllaDB Enterprise is a NoSQL database API compatible with Apache Cassandra, but delivers up to 10X the performance of other Cassandra implementations.

New Features

Using your own AWS account

You can now choose where you can deploy your ScyllaDB Cloud database — via your ScyllaDB Cloud account, or in your own AWS account. Deploying in your own AWS account allows you to keep all ScyllaDB resources (EC2, network, S3 buckets, etc.) in your own account, with your own AWS pricing, and your own company policies and geographic regulation, while benefiting from the DBaaS nature of ScyllaDB Cloud (fully maintained, 24/7 support, proactive alerts, transparent upgrades, best practices deployments, and so on).

To deploy ScyllaDB Cloud in your own account, you are welcome to register in ScyllaDB Cloud and open a support ticket with the request. In the future, this step will be fully automated.

Extracting ScyllaDB DB metrics to your organization’s centralized monitoring system via Prometheus

ScyllaDB Cloud now supports extracting cluster statistics in Prometheus format. The configuration is done at the cluster level, so you can choose which cluster’s metrics you wish to extract. Extracted statistics can be used either with ScyllaDB Monitoring Stack or with any other monitoring tool that supports the Prometheus format. For example, see our DataDog and ScyllaDB integration blog.

ScyllaDB Enterprise Release Information

ScyllaDB Cloud now uses ScyllaDB Enterprise 2019.1.4, the latest stable release of ScyllaDB Enterprise. As new ScyllaDB Enterprise releases become available, ScyllaDB will upgrade your cluster for you.
