ScyllaDB Acquires Seastar.io Database-as-a-Service Technology

Addition to ScyllaDB portfolio will help developers build high-performance applications on
cloud platforms such as AWS

Key Points:

  • ScyllaDB has acquired Seastar.io technology from Network Redux to support the rising demand for its Cassandra-compatible database on cloud platforms.
  • Seastar.io technology and other additions to the ScyllaDB product set will be on display at the upcoming ScyllaDB Summit 2017, October 24-25 in San Francisco.

PALO ALTO, Calif. (Oct. 17, 2017)ScyllaDB, the next generation of NoSQL, today announced it has acquired Seastar.io, a hosted Apache Cassandra service, from Network Redux. As part of the ScyllaDB enterprise product and service portfolio, Seastar.io technology enables developers to use fully managed ScyllaDB over popular public clouds, such as AWS.

ScyllaDB is an open source drop-in Cassandra replacement that is powered by C++. Utilizing the best from Cassandra in high availability, fault tolerance and a rich ecosystem, ScyllaDB offers developers a higher performing and more resource-effective Cassandra alternative to power demanding applications without compromising availability.

Seastar.io emerged in 2014 with the explicit goal of solving automation and security challenges faced when deploying stateful, container-native Cassandra-compatible databases in the cloud. It enables developers to have a cluster up and running in minutes, aided by a dashboard and API that greatly simplify the provisioning process.

“Our acquisition of Seastar.io couldn’t have come at a better time in our company’s evolution,” said Dor Laor, CEO and founder of ScyllaDB. “In the last year, we’ve seen rising demand for hosted ScyllaDB on various cloud platforms. Core Seastar.io technology will make ScyllaDB even more accessible to developers who are building high performance applications on cloud platforms.”

“We are excited to see Seastar.io technology carried forward by the amazing team at ScyllaDB,” said Thomas Brenneke, President of Network Redux. “The combination of the powerful ScyllaDB NoSQL database and Seastar.io capabilities will help give rise to the next generation of applications.”
