scylla open source 3.0

Scylla Open Source 3.0 introduces a rich set of new features for more efficient querying, reduced storage requirements, lower repair times, and better overall database performance. Already the industry’s most performant NoSQL database, Scylla Open Source now includes production-ready features beyond the capabilities of Apache Cassandra.

New in Scylla Open Source 3.0

blue arrow

Materialized Views

Creates a persistent table that is a subset of a base table, using different keys and thus accelerating the search. The view and the base consistencies are managed by Scylla automatically. Materialized Views are now fully production ready in Scylla 3.0, while still experimental in Apache Cassandra.

blue arrow

Global Secondary Indexes (GSI)

Allows you to query data through non-primary key columns, minimizing the amount of data retrieved from the database and resulting in faster interactions. GSI is compatible with Apache Cassandra; however, with Scylla the index is cluster-global and search does not depend on the size of the cluster.

blue arrow

Allow Filtering

Get more query flexibility by appending queries with ALLOW FILTERING to bypass some Cassandra query restrictions. Designed for low-selectivity queries, the ALLOW FILTERING command can be executed on regular and primary key columns, reducing the network traffic back to the client and resulting in better application performance.

blue arrow

SSTable 3.0 Compatibility

Now compatible with the latest Apache Cassandra file format (SSTable “mc”), which results in less disk space used and improved performance. The storage volume is reduced by as much as 3X.

blue arrow

Hinted Handoff

Automatically recover intermediate failures by storing up to 3 hours of untransmitted data between nodes. This improves consistency and reduces the repair time and amount of work, resulting in higher overall performance for large clusters.

blue arrow

Multi-Partition Scan Improvement:

Increases system responsiveness and efficiency by improving locality and caching of range scans. This feature increases the throughput of range scans by 30%, reduces the amount of data read from the disk by 40% and lowers disk operations by as much as 75%.

blue arrow

Streaming Improvements

Boost the speed of auto-scaling the cluster as well as replacing faulty nodes. These improvements result in higher performance for the overall system when there is a change in the cluster topology.
