Scylla NoSQL database now available as a fully managed service, setting a new standard for DBaaS performance, scale and cost
PALO ALTO, CALIF. — April 9, 2019 — ScyllaDB today announced the launch of Scylla Cloud, a fully managed version of Scylla Enterprise, the ultrafast, scalable and cost-effective NoSQL database in production at leading companies across industries including mobile, IoT, finance, entertainment, social media, advertising and manufacturing.
Scylla Cloud handles petabytes of data with ease, performing millions of operations per second with predictable low latencies and global high availability. It allows rapid prototyping, deployment and scaling of applications without the overhead of database administration, allowing developers to move high-performance applications quickly into production.
By virtue of its close-to-the-metal design, Scylla’s NoSQL database can efficiently scale up to millions of operations per second on a single 96-vCPU node, and scale out to hundreds of nodes. Scylla Cloud automatically extracts maximum performance from its underlying hardware, generating significant cost savings by requiring fewer servers for a given workload. Scylla Cloud runs the same workloads as Amazon’s DynamoDB and Google Cloud BigTable at roughly one-fifth the price and one-third the latency.
“Database users no longer have to choose between the convenience of cloud services and the ability to keep costs predictable and low,” said Dor Laor, CEO and co-founder of ScyllaDB. “Existing cloud databases are prohibitively expensive, requiring wasteful overprovisioning, and all too often they can’t meet the SLAs of today’s real-time applications. Many are proprietary top to bottom, and lock enterprises into a specific cloud service with no exit path. With our roots in open source, we built Scylla Cloud to fix all that.”
With Scylla Cloud, ScyllaDB now offers options for every type of deployment. Users can run their own Scylla clusters on-premises or in the public cloud, or offload database administration by migrating to the Scylla Cloud managed service. Teams can spin up a developer cluster for pennies an hour or a production-ready cluster of dozens of larger i3 instances across multiple regions and availability zones.
Now available in AWS’s US East, US West, Germany, Ireland, Singapore and Japan regions — with more coming soon — Scylla Cloud will also soon run on Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform.
“Machines and algorithms are getting really good at ‘seeing’—and making sense of what they see,” said Jason Mills, Engineering Manager at artificial intelligence leader GumGum. “However, computer vision requires complex workloads that run against huge datasets in real-time, making Scylla Cloud the ideal database for our AI-based advertising platform. We’re storing all of our global ad performance data in Scylla Cloud since other cloud database options simply weren’t fast enough to meet our SLAs.”
