Scylla’s underlying architecture enables it to consistently deliver P99 latencies in the low single-digit milliseconds, even under extreme load. Maintenance operations do not slow performance.
Scylla uses a highly asynchronous, non-blocking design that takes full advantage of modern hardware architecture to provide the throughput you need for even the most taxing of workloads.
Scylla has a unified cache and self-optimizes its performance, making it easier to use than Cassandra, which requires complex manual cache and JVM tuning.
Scylla makes full use of your hardware infrastructure, minimizing node count and reducing administrative overhead.
Scylla is a drop-in replacement for Cassandra. Keep all your existing client code — you can use your existing data models and queries using our CQL interface for Cassandra-like operations.
Aside simply performing far better, Scylla’s implementation of CQL goes beyond Cassandra, adding new and improved features, like:
You get all this while keeping your development ecosystem the same: client drivers and big data frameworks like Apache Kafka® and Apache Spark™ all connect to Scylla seamlessly.
Scylla’s Cassandra-compatible CQL interface provides three key benefits to users:
Cost Scylla can run your workloads more efficiently, meaning you do get the most out of your infrastructure. Even though both Scylla and Cassandra are free open source, the hardware you require to run them on is not. Because Scylla can scale better vertically, you can run it on bigger nodes, reducing your node count to save further on related operational expenses. According to our benchmark with Scylla users can save up to 2.5X on your cloud vendor bill.
Scylla is a drop-in replacement for DynamoDB. No need to change your client code — you can keep all your existing data models and queries when using our DynamoDB-compatible API.Scylla’s implementation of the DynamoDB API goes beyond Amazon’s implementation with leading features such as:
All while keeping your development ecosystem the same: SDKs and big data frameworks like Apache Kafka® and Apache Spark™ all connect to Scylla seamlessly.
Scylla’s DynamoDB-compatible API provides three key benefits to users:
Cost DynamoDB charges for read and write transactions (RRUs and WRUs). A free open source solution eliminates these costs and minimizes other operational expenses. Scylla’s design efficiency allows developers to use significantly fewer resources for the same task or workload. According to our benchmark, users can expect to save 80% – 93% overall to support the same workload (5x-14x less expensive). Because of its highly performant design Scylla would also eliminate the cost of any in-memory cache (such as DAX).
