ScyllaDB and Samsung SDS Announce Global Partnership

ScyllaDB is a groundbreaking C++ implementation of the popular Apache Cassandra database. As a drop-in replacement for Cassandra requiring no additional scripts or code, ScyllaDB has proven in the Yahoo! Cloud Serving Benchmark (YCSB) to deliver significantly superior throughput, latency, storage capacity, availability, horizontal scalability, and latency.

“We see tremendous opportunities from our partnership with Samsung SDS,” said Dor Laor, Chief Executive Officer, ScyllaDB. “Their growing investments in the field of big data are resulting in exciting new capabilities. The addition of ScyllaDB as a big data vehicle in the Samsung portfolio will be beneficial to customers worldwide.”

“We’re excited by our work with ScyllaDB,” said HaeKwang Ryu, Head of Cloud Technology at Samsung SDS. “Teams involved in big data projects have been hampered by underlying databases that are too frail and do not perform to the levels required by their demanding applications. ScyllaDB has overcome these issues with its innovative and highly performant NoSQL database. Samsung SDS would like to find business use cases using ScyllaDB, such as IoT log, SNS data processing in manufacturing, retail, and healthcare verticals.”
