Interest in ScyllaDB is growing around the world. To help foster global adoption, ScyllaDB encourages online communities in users’ own native languages. Contact us if you are or would like to host or moderate a group for your own linguistic community.
We welcome feature contributions, bug reports and bug fixes, documentation improvements, and other ways for you to help make ScyllaDB the best open source NoSQL database software possible. The basic steps are:

ScyllaDB is under constant and rigorous testing for a battery of cases: compatibility, longevity, filesystem errors, data integrity, and distributed systems behavior. We’ve even made many of our tests open source, such as our longevity test, a Jepsen test, CharybdeFS file system injections and Project Gemini nemesis testing.

The goal of the ScyllaDB Open Source server license is to require that enhancements to ScyllaDB be released to the community. Traditional GPL often does not achieve this anymore as a huge amount of software runs in the cloud. For example, Google has no obligation to release their improvements to the MySQL kernel – if they do, they are being nice.
We promise that we will not seek to enforce the copyleft provisions in the AGPL v3.0 against you if your application (a) does not link to the ScyllaDB database directly but exclusively uses ScyllaDB drivers, and (b) you have not modified, added to, or adapted the source code of the ScyllaDB database in a way that would result in the creation of a “modified version” of or a “work based on” the ScyllaDB database as such terms are used in the AGPL v3.0. ScyllaDB works with unmodified Apache Cassandra drivers (the part you link with your application), which are released under the Apache license, which is copyleft free.
If the above is not enough to satisfy your organization’s legal department (some will not approve GPL in any form), commercial licenses are available. Feel free to contact us for details.
