ScyllaDB Enterprise Named a Winner in InfoWorld Technology of the Year Awards

PALO ALTO, CALIF. — February 11, 2020 — ScyllaDB Enterprise, the flagship edition of ScyllaDB’s monstrously fast and scalable NoSQL database, earned a spot among some of the industry’s biggest names in this year’s InfoWorld Technology of the Year Awards.

Selected by editors and reviewers of IDG’s InfoWorld, the annual awards identify the best and most innovative products on the IT landscape. Winners are drawn from products tested during the past year, with the final selections made by InfoWorld’s Reviews staff.

Other winners included Atlassian, Confluent, Databricks, Datadog, HashiCorp and Snowflake.

“If ‘digital transformation’ means anything, it means taking advantage of the latest advances in software development, cloud computing, data analytics, and AI to improve your business,” said Doug Dineley, executive editor of InfoWorld. “Our 2020 Technology of the Year Award winners are the platforms and tools that the most innovative companies are using to tap the power of data, streamline business processes, and respond more quickly to customers and new business opportunities.”

Used by Fortune 500 companies like Comcast and hypergrowth businesses like Grab, ScyllaDB Enterprise is a high-performance drop-in replacement for Apache Cassandra and DynamoDB, written from the ground-up in C++. ScyllaDB’s shared-nothing approach delivers throughput as much as 10X greater than Cassandra and DynamoDB, while its self-tuning architecture minimizes maintenance and ensures maximum performance under the heaviest loads.

ScyllaDB Enterprise received InfoWorld’s coveted “Editor’s Choice” accolade, with the reviewer calling it “the rare product that exceeds my expectations.”

“We set out to create the best NoSQL database in the world, and this award underscores how far we’ve come,” said Dor Laor, ScyllaDB Cofounder and CEO. “Over the years we’ve expanded ScyllaDB’s capabilities patch by patch, idea by idea, optimizing every block of code and squeezing every CPU cycle, while keeping ScyllaDB easy to use and affordable to maintain. I’m proud of our team and grateful to our users, whose desires, visions and ideas have guided us every step of the way.”

ScyllaDB Enterprise is available as downloadable software or a fully managed hosted service, ScyllaDB Cloud. ScyllaDB also offers a free, open source distribution that matches Apache Cassandra feature-for-feature, and surpasses Cassandra in important capabilities such as Materialized Views and Secondary Indexes.
