San Jose, CA – September 6, 2016
At today’s Scylla Summit, ScyllaDB announced the general availability release 1.3 of its revolutionary open source NoSQL database. A ground-breaking C++ implementation of the popular Apache Cassandra database, Scylla delivers the superior performance, high availability, horizontal scalability and low latency that organizations require for big data projects, high-volume ecommerce and AdTech applications, and Internet of Things (IOT) initiatives.
Scylla delivers on the promise of big data by uniquely combining the functionality of Cassandra with the speed of a light key/value store. Its performance advantages over other approaches include:

“ScyllaDB has quickly demonstrated significant progress in advancing NoSQL,” said Ben Slater, Chief Product Officer of Instaclustr. “We have had several enquiries from customers interested in evaluating Scylla and it is clearly moving rapidly to being a technology worthy of consideration for many production workloads.”
ScyllaDB was first released in beta a year ago, with its initial production release in February 2016. The latest release of ScyllaDB is available for download at http://www.scylladb.com/doc/getting-started/
“We have hardened our database over the course of the past year in order to deliver consistent performance over time with effortless admin,” said Avi Kivity, Chief Technology Officer, ScyllaDB. “Based on the enthusiastic feedback we’ve received from early users of our product, we brought a number of significant new capabilities to this feature-rich release, including tighter integration with graph databases, improved support for Thrift, Date Tiered Compaction Strategy, Large Partitions, Docker, CQL tracing, and much more.”
The first-annual Scylla Summit is a full day of presentations by Big Data, DevOps, application architecture and development luminaries. Scylla customers, partners and staff will present on industry trends, architectural considerations, and use cases of ScyllaDB as a high-performance, yet fully compatible, alternative to Cassandra. ScyllaDB executives will share the company’s product roadmap. Additionally, the Scylla development team will be on hand to provide insights into Scylla design and performance optimization.
“Our intentions are clear—we aim to make big waves in the big data field,” said Dor Laor, Chief Executive Officer, ScyllaDB. “We’re encouraged by the success our customers and partners have had in surmounting the challenges presented by big data applications, and we’re glad for the opportunity to share their insights at our first Scylla Summit.”
