New release introduces enterprise support for Amazon DynamoDB-compatible API, transactions, streaming API and enhanced query capabilities
PALO ALTO, CALIF. — August 19, 2020 — ScyllaDB today announced Scylla Enterprise 2020, the latest major release of its high-performance NoSQL database for real-time big data workloads. As ScyllaDB’s premium database product, Scylla Enterprise offers the highest level of performance, scale, security and availability. New production-ready features in Scylla Enterprise 2020 provide greater consistency, new querying capabilities, an Amazon DynamoDB-compatible API and numerous product enhancements.
Scylla Enterprise is a drop-in replacement for Apache Cassandra and Amazon DynamoDB, delivering better, more consistent performance, significantly lower total cost of ownership and greater deployment flexibility. Scylla Enterprise 2020 extends Scylla’s already impressive advantages over Cassandra, including the ability to scale up to any number of cores, multi-petabyte capacity with nodes as large as 60TB, built-in schedulers, unified cache and self-tuning operations.
Benchmarks demonstrate that Scylla is about 1/8 the total cost of Amazon DynamoDB for the same workloads. Performance comparisons show Scylla Enterprise 2020 delivers more than 5X greater throughput and nearly 10X lower P99 latencies than Apache Cassandra. Scylla Enterprise scales out 24X faster than Apache Cassandra, allowing users to run without overprovisioning.
New Capabilities in Scylla Enterprise 2020
Additional features and enhancements since Scylla Enterprise 2019.1 include:
“After 5,568 commits from five open source releases, we’re excited to now move forward with Scylla Enterprise 2020,” said Dor Laor, CEO and co-founder, ScyllaDB. “Our superior performance and lower total cost of ownership have led so many Cassandra users to migrate to Scylla, and we now expect the same shift from users of Amazon DynamoDB. Developers don’t want to be locked into a single platform, especially one that’s so expensive.”

Selected by editors and reviewers of IDG’s InfoWorld, the annual awards identify the best and most innovative products on the IT landscape. Other winners included Atlassian, Confluent, Databricks, Datadog, HashiCorp and Snowflake.
