Scylla Open Source 3.0 Brings Production-Ready Materialized Views, Secondary Indexes, Cassandra 3.0 Compatibility and More
PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 6, 2018 — ScyllaDB, the real-time big data database company, kicked off its two-day Scylla Summit by announcing a major release of its database, Scylla Open Source 3.0. The company also previewed Scylla support for concurrent OLTP and OLAP, an industry first that enables simultaneous transactional and analytical processing. This release marks a significant milestone, as the company surpasses feature parity with Apache Cassandra, the popular open source NoSQL database. As a drop-in replacement for Apache Cassandra with as much as 10 times better performance, Scylla Open Source has added production-ready capabilities much anticipated by the NoSQL community, while introducing ground-breaking new NoSQL database features that improve utilization and minimize operational overhead.
Scylla Open Source 3.0 features a close-to-the-hardware design that makes optimal use of modern servers. Written from the ground-up in C++ to provide significant improvements to throughput, latency and administration, Scylla delivers scale-up performance of more than 1,000,000 IOPS per node, scales out to hundreds of nodes, and consistently achieves a 99% tail latency of less than 1 millisecond.
“Migrating our Cassandra clusters to Scylla has always made sense in terms of reducing our hardware footprint, getting our latencies predictably lower and cutting the time we used to spend tuning the database,” said Ho Kim, Leader of Cloud Business at Samsung SDS “Now we’re seeing Scylla take its product beyond what we can do with Cassandra, which is really exciting for our teams.”
New Scylla Capabilities Announced Today
Speaking at Scylla Summit 2018, CEO and co-founder of ScyllaDB, Dor Laor said,
“Scylla 3.0 represents a huge leap forward in functionality and scalability. We finally reached parity with Apache Cassandra, and developed a ground-breaking OLTP+OLAP service level agreement guarantee that puts us on a path towards pure multi-tenancy and positions us favorably against Amazon DynamoDB and Microsoft’s Azure Cosmos DB, among others.”
Scylla Open Source 3.0 will be available in January 2019, with concurrent OLTP and OLAP support available shortly thereafter. Existing users are encouraged to upgrade to the new version in order to take full advantage of performance gains and new capabilities.
