Frequently Asked Questions

GENERAL

How does Scylla Cloud compare with other DBaaS offerings?

Since it requires far fewer machines to achieve high throughput, Scylla Cloud’s price performance will set a new bar for the industry. It’s consistent, low single-digit p99 latencies also set it apart. And Scylla Cloud will give teams the flexibility to use whatever environment they require, as there is no vendor lock-in.

What region will my servers be set up in?

You get to choose the region, based on your location.

Where is Scylla Cloud service available?

Scylla Cloud is available worldwide.

What type of server should I choose for my workload?

The larger the server, the more performance you can expect and the greater amount of data you can store. The Scylla architecture allows you to first scale up to a larger instance (reducing the chance of noisy neighbors) before scaling out to use more servers.

What kind of monitoring do I get?

Scylla Cloud is fully managed and includes patching, versioning, backup, scaling, security and restoring of data by user request. There are a few actions like back/scale that are done manually by Scylla at the moment, but from the user perspective it’s all fully managed. We handle your daily backups and scaling is done per request. We constantly monitor the cluster and will let you know when a scale-out operation is recommended.

Will I be able to use Scylla Monitoring for my Cloud clusters?

Yes, you will get a simplified monitoring dashboard as part of your Scylla Cloud implementation. In addition, ScyllaDB engineers will have access to the full monitoring stack for each cluster in order to closely monitor the performance of the cluster.

When will Scylla Cloud be available on Microsoft Azure and/or Google Cloud Platform?

We are interested in understanding your requirements with regard to various cloud providers. If you require another cloud provider, please contact cloud-support@scylladb.com.

Who monitors and maintains the servers and storage that I am using in the cloud?

Engineers from ScyllaDB actively monitor the systems to ensure maximum performance.

TECH

What is the Scylla Cloud backup policy?

Scylla will back up your database that resides in Scylla Cloud on a daily basis and will retain five copies of the backup. The backups will be retained for 1 day, 2 days, 3 days, 1 week and 2 weeks.

What type of server should I choose for my workload?

The larger the server, the more performance you can expect and the greater amount of data you can store. The Scylla architecture allows you to first scale up to a larger instance (reducing the chance of noisy neighbors) before scaling out to use more servers.

Is Scylla Cloud compatible with Scylla Enterprise and Scylla Open Source?

Yes. Scylla Cloud is powered by Scylla Enterprise. All applications written for Scylla Enterprise will work with Scylla Cloud.

What version of Scylla runs in Scylla Cloud? Open Source or Enterprise?

Scylla Cloud uses the latest version of Scylla Enterprise. We automatically upgrade your servers to the latest maintenance release of Scylla Enterprise.

When and how do you perform upgrades? Will you notify me beforehand?

Scylla will notify you before we upgrade the nodes that are part of your Scylla Cloud cluster.  You may request a delay of just a few days before Scylla performs the upgrade. It is in everyone’s best interest for you to be running the latest version of Scylla Enterprise on the clusters you are using.

How will upgrades impact my performance?

Upgrades of Scylla Enterprise to your Scylla Cloud cluster will not affect performance. We perform a rolling upgrade, so the cluster is always available.

Do you provision dynamically based on my increased workloads?

Not at this time. If you need additional capacity, please contact cloud-support@scylladb.com and we will work with you to migrate to larger capacity instances. We will notify you when you are reaching the maximum performance or storage limit of your cluster.

Can I use SSH to access the cluster?

No, you must use the Cassandra Query Language (CQL) protocol to access the data in your Scylla cluster. CQL doesn’t access the cluster servers at the operating system level; it is a language used to make queries to your data in the database. As a managed service, we do not provide system or shell access to users.

How do I migrate my data into Scylla Cloud? Is there a way to do a bulk insert? Will there be any downtime?

More information is available at: https://docs.scylladb.com/operating-scylla/procedures/cassandra_to_scylla_migration_process/

We recommend you use an intermediate system to extract the data from an existing Cassandra implementation and then move it to your Scylla Cloud cluster. The ScyllaDB support team can help you to set up this migration. No downtime is needed to migrate the data.

Do you provide consulting services if I need additional help?

Yes, ScyllaDB can provide consulting services. Please contact cloud-support@scylladb.com for more information.

What are the various amounts of storage we can have per node?

Scylla Cloud can be deployed on a variety of node sizes. The specifics are available after you have logged into your account. The instances range from 486 GB to 15.2 TB SSD storage per node.

BILLING

Can I change from using a credit card to pay for my Scylla Cloud usage to receiving an invoice?

Yes you can. Please contact us at cloud-support@scylladb.com

If I switch to a yearly contract, how are unused funds from my previous invoice applied?

Scylla will apply any unused amounts to your account and reduce the amount once you convert to a yearly contract.

If I fail to pay promptly, or if there is a billing problem, what risk is there to my data? Will it all be deleted?

Before deleting any cluster, we will make an effort to contact you via the email and phone number you supplied us when you registered. In any case, we will save the last backup of your cluster for up to 30 days.

What costs are included in what I am paying?

Your payment includes both the fixed costs and variable costs that are calculated based on the amount of data that is being stored.

How do you set the price I pay for Scylla Cloud?

We set the price based on the number and size of the instances as well as your unique data footprint. We are substantially less expensive than AWS DynamoDB.

How often do you change your pricing? How long are my current prices good for?

We do not expect to change our pricing unless AWS changes the pricing for the hardware, backup or network traffic.

I deleted my cluster before the end of the month. What part of the monthly price will I pay?

If you paid on the per-hour basis, then you will be charged for only those hours since the cluster was provisioned.

When does the monthly billing cycle start and end?

The billing starts when you sign up and provision your first cluster and ends at the end of the current month. Thereafter, the billing will be on a calendar month basis.

I added a node mid-month, when do I start paying for it?

You start paying as soon as you add the node.

How will I be billed for usage?

You may acquire Scylla Cloud instances by using a credit card (initially US only) or choose to be invoiced.

I have a billing problem that I can’t solve online. How can I contact you?

You can either open a support ticket from the website by clicking the “Support” on the left navigation menu, or you can also send an email to cloud-support@scylladb.com.

You asked for a credit card, but my monthly costs will exceed my credit limit. What do I do?

You are welcome to contact support (cloud-support@scylladb.com) and we will provide you with other payment options.

I want an invoice for my use of the Scylla Cloud. If I don’t know how much the total amount will be for the month, how much will Scylla issue the invoice for?

Scylla will send you an invoice for the fixed costs for your cluster in order to cover the variable costs (networking and backup). If your fixed + variable costs exceed the amount of the invoice, then an additional invoice will be sent at the agreed upon time.
