Global delivery logistics platform selects ScyllaDB’s real-time NoSQL database
Palo Alto, Calif. — October 11, 2019 — ScyllaDB today announced that GetSwift, a leading SaaS provider for last-mile delivery, is using Scylla Enterprise to power data analytics and reporting to support its customers across 6 continents, in 75 industries.
GetSwift tapped Scylla Enterprise because it significantly outperformed the major Cassandra distributions in head-to-head benchmarks, demonstrating the performance, management and scalability to meet GetSwift’s worldwide data warehouses’ demands.
“We needed a world-class NoSQL database to run our ‘always-on’ data cluster technology,” said GetSwift CTO Dennis Noto. “We’re building a new analytics solution for online dispatching, and Scylla Enterprise is the only product we found with the performance and ease of use we require. We were so impressed that after finishing our reporting subsystems, we’ll look to bring the same characteristics to our high-performance OLTP operations.”
Scylla’s close-to-the-metal architecture sealed the deal. With its shared-nothing approach, lower total-cost-of-ownership and ability to self-tune, Scylla scales up to fully leverage available hardware resources, while requiring minimal administrative overhead.
“When you’re offering the smoothest last-mile delivery anywhere, you need a next-generation database at your core. It has to be fast, it has to be reliable and it has to be easy to manage. On all counts, Scylla was the best solution we tested,” said GetSwift CEO Bane Hunter.
In selecting Scylla, GetSwift joins many of the world’s most popular services — including Comcast, Yahoo! Japan, Southeast Asia’s super app Grab and India’s Ola Cabs.
