ScyllaDB Benchmarks

NoSQL Database Benchmarks

Selecting the best NoSQL database for your application is a business-critical task. That’s why we constantly compare ScyllaDB vs. other NoSQL databases for throughput and latency. Database latency determines your application speed, while database throughput defines how many users your application can service.

Apache Cassandra 4.0 vs Apache Cassandra 3.11 vs ScyllaDB Open Source 4.4

  • Cassandra 4.0 has better P99 latency than Cassandra 3.11
  • ScyllaDB has 2x-5x better throughput and much better latencies than Cassandra 4.0
  • ScyllaDB adds and replaces nodes far faster than Cassandra 4.0
  • ScyllaDB finishes compaction 32x faster than Cassandra 4.0 

ScyllaDB vs DynamoDB – Database Benchmark

  • 20x better throughput in the hot-partition test
  • ScyllaDB Cloud is 1/7 the expense of DynamoDB when running equivalent workloads
  • ScyllaDB Cloud: Average replication latency of 82ms. DynamoDB: Average latency of 370ms.
  • ScyllaDB provides you freedom of choice with no cloud vendor lock-in

ScyllaDB vs Bigtable – Database Benchmark

  • ScyllaDB Cloud performs 26X better than Google Cloud Bigtable when applied with real-world, unoptimized data distribution
  • Google BigTable requires 10X as many nodes to accept the same workload as ScyllaDB Cloud
  • ScyllaDB Cloud was able to sustain 26x the throughput, and with read latencies 1/800th and write latencies less than 1/100th of Cloud Bigtable

ScyllaDB vs CockroachDB – Database Benchmark

  • Loading 10x the data into ScyllaDB took less than half the time it took for CockroachDB to load the much lesser dataset.
  • ScyllaDB handled 10x the amount of data.
  • ScyllaDB achieved 9.3x the throughput of CockroachDB at 1/4th the latency.
