ScyllaDB Benchmarks

NoSQL Database Benchmarks

Selecting the best NoSQL database for your application is a business-critical task. That’s why we constantly compare Scylla 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 Scylla Open Source 4.4

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

Scylla vs DynamoDB – Database Benchmark

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

Scylla vs Bigtable – Database Benchmark

  • Scylla 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 Scylla Cloud
  • Scylla Cloud was able to sustain 26x the throughput, and with read latencies 1/800th and write latencies less than 1/100th of Cloud Bigtable

Scylla vs CockroachDB – Database Benchmark

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