ScyllaDB Announces Integration with World’s First 10nm Qualcomm Centriq 2400 Server Processor

Benchmarks of ScyllaDB NoSQL database running on Qualcomm Centriq 2400 show impressive performance and horizontal scalability

PALO ALTO, CALIF. – November 8, 2017 – ScyllaDB, the next generation of NoSQL, today announced that it has integrated its open source database with the Qualcomm Centriq™ 2400 processor, Qualcomm Datacenter Technologies’ new Arm-based server processor chip. Initial internal benchmarks show impressive performance and horizontal scalability when running ScyllaDB on Qualcomm Centriq 2400, demonstrating the opportunity for organizations to significantly boost application performance while reducing total cost of ownership.

ScyllaDB is an open source drop-in Apache 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.

“Qualcomm Centriq 2400 processor was purpose-built for cloud-native applications that are highly threaded and deployed in scale-out topologies,” said Ram Peddibhotla, vice president, product management, Qualcomm Datacenter Technologies. “By coupling our high throughput performance processor with ScyllaDB’s innovative Cassandra alternative, our customers can deliver exceptional performance at lower power across a multitude of nodes at scale. Our collaboration with ScyllaDB exemplifies the open ecosystem around Qualcomm Centriq 2400 processor that enables customers to deploy best-of-breed solutions.”

ScyllaDB recently completed a benchmark study of its database running on three Qualcomm Centriq 2400-based servers, with a varying number of cores on each machine. The study shows that performance exceeded 1,000,000 IOPS, and scaled linearly as the number of cores per machine was increased from 10 to 40.

“Our collaboration on the Qualcomm Centriq 2400 server processor has brought our powerful ScyllaDB NoSQL database to a purpose-built high-performance processor that offers developers and customers alike an exceptional performance point for demanding applications without compromising availability, scalability, and total cost of ownership,” said Dor Laor, CEO of ScyllaDB. “The combination of Qualcomm Datacenter Technologies’ novel architecture and ScyllaDB’s shared-nothing approach enables applications to scale up with the number of cores, driving significant improvements to performance, power, and cost.”
