Scylla Open Source 3.3 introduces a rich set of new production-ready features for IPv6, LIKE operators, as well as experimental features such as Lightweight Transactions (LWT), Change Data Capture (CDC) and a DynamoDB-compatible API. Already the industry’s most performant NoSQL database, Scylla Open Source includes features beyond the capabilities of Apache Cassandra.
Scylla Open Source 4.0 is here!
Beyond the features listed below, we have a whole new set of capabilities and enhancements with the release of Scylla Open Source 4.0. Production-ready features like Lightweight Transactions (LWT) and Alternator, our DynamoDB-compatible API, plus significant changes to experimental features like Change Data Capture (CDC) and User Defined Functions (UDFs) using Lua scripting.
Scylla User Defined Functions (UDF) with the Lua language adds the ability for developers to deploy server-side scripts to perform data transforms such as aggregations, sums and averages. This simplifies complex queries for developers who need fast and easy streamlined queries that fit their service’s data-model.
This feature allows you to track changes made to a base table in your database for visibility or auditing. Changes made to the base table are stored in a separate table that can be queried by standard CQL. Our CDC implementation uses a configurable Time To Live (TTL) to ensure it does not occupy an inordinate amount of your disk.
Our Amazon DynamoDB-compatible API implementation, known as Project Alternator, enables you to connect your DynamoDB applications to Scylla without any changes to your client code. This gives you the multi-cloud, multi-vendor flexibility you need for resiliency and disaster recovery.
