Our latest enterprise release, Scylla Enterprise 2020.1 includes a rich set of features for streamlined migration from Amazon DynamoDB, transactions, more efficient querying, reduced storage requirements, lower repair times, and better overall database performance.
Amazon DynamoDB users can now switch to Scylla without changing a single line of application code. Scylla significantly reduces the total cost of ownership, delivers lower and more consistent latencies and expands the limitations DynamoDB places on object size, partition size, etc. You can run Scylla on-premises, on your preferred cloud platforms or on Scylla’s fully managed database as a service, Scylla Cloud. You are free to access their data as you like, without pay-per-operation fees, and with more deployment options, including Docker and Kubernetes.
We’ve also introduced enhancements for the Cassandra Query Language (CQL), to provide more granular and efficient results, from adding new clauses such as GROUP BY and BYPASS CACHE, to enhancements in ALLOW FILTERING (such as multi-column and CONTAINS restrictions), to a LIKE operator to enable searching for patterns in user data.
CDC allows users to track changes in their data, recording both the original data values and the new values to records. With CDC, Scylla streams changes to a standard CQL table that can be indexed or filtered to find critical changes to data. The new API offers functionality that’s superior to both Cassandra and DynamoDB. (Production ready in Scylla Enterprise 2020.2)
After 5,568 commits originating from five open source releases, Scylla Enterprise 2020 has many additional additional features and enhancements since Scylla Enterprise 2019, including:
Scylla Enterprise 2020.1 incorporates the features first introduced in Scylla Open Source 4.0. We invite you to learn more below.
Find out how Scylla’s Lightweight Transactions (LWT) are far more efficient than Apache Cassandra, and how you can use conditional updates to perform compare-and-set (CAS) operations.
