The Scylla Advantage

We built our NoSQL database with a close-to-the-hardware, shared-nothing approach that optimizes raw performance, fully utilizes modern multi-core servers and minimizes the overhead to DevOps. Scylla is API-compatible with both Cassandra and DynamoDB, yet is much faster, more consistent and with a lower TCO.

Benefits of Using Scylla’s Big Data Database

A true NoSQL database for the most demanding applications

Low and Consistent Latency

Provides near-millisecond average latency and predictably low-single-digit P99 response times.

Always-On Availability

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

10x Higher Throughput

Takes advantage of low-level Linux/C++ and modern async I/O methods to maximize IOPS.

Highly Scalable

Automatically shards per core across multiple nodes and datacenters, ensuring linear scalability.

Easy to Use

Same APIs as Apache Cassandra® and Amazon DynamoDB. Integrates with Spark and Kafka.

Community Backed

Open source database since day one. Scylla is backed by a growing community of contributors.

Compaction, Streaming & Repair Solved

Built-in schedulers keep overhead tasks in check so database performance remains smooth and reliable.

Optimum Total Cost of Ownership

Efficient utility of your hardware means you get the most of your big data infrastructure investment.

Auto Tuning

Fully automated setup needs zero manual configuration, and uses dynamic tuning to maintain optimal performance.
