NoSQL Cluster Management System

ScyllaDB Manager is the automated NoSQL cluster management application for ScyllaDB, the fast and scalable NoSQL distributed database. Our NoSQL manager is available for ScyllaDB Enterprise customers and ScyllaDB Open Source users. ScyllaDB Cloud customers do not need to obtain ScyllaDB Manager; all administrative tasks for their clusters are fully managed on their behalf by ScyllaDB.

Automate Repetitive Tasks

ScyllaDB Manager solves critical operational problems with automatic recurring tasks. Operations teams can quickly schedule recurring tasks such as backups, restores, node rebuilds and repairs across their clusters, perform cluster health-check and more. A single instance of ScyllaDB Manager is able to manage multiple ScyllaDB NoSQL clusters spread across multiple geographic regions and data centers. Automatic topology discovery using node agents simplifies setup and NoSQL database management.

Backup and Restore

ScyllaDB Manager allows users to execute backups in a controlled way without affecting database performance. It also allows you to quickly restore your data from a backup. ScyllaDB Manager offers backup to Amazon S3, any S3-compatible API storage, Google Cloud Storage, or Azure Blob Storage.DB

ScyllaDB is built for high availability and resilience and can withstand unexpected node failures. However, systemic disasters can always strike. Rapid disaster recovery makes ScyllaDB one of the most resilient NoSQL database systems for distributed transactional workloads.

ScyllaDB NoSQL Cluster Monitoring

ScyllaDB Manager seamlessly integrates with ScyllaDB Monitoring Stack. It aggregates performance data across the cluster and making it available for ScyllaDB Monitoring Stack in open-source Prometheus format. Deploying ScyllaDB Monitoring Stack alongside ScyllaDB Manager empowers operations teams to track real-time metrics using out-of-the-box Grafana dashboards.


ScyllaDB Manager is a lightweight stateless Go application that uses ScyllaDB as its persistent store. A ScyllaDB Agent runs alongside each ScyllaDB database on the node to collect local database metrics/information and send them to ScyllaDB Manager over HTTPS. Operations teams can centrally interact with all nodes of the ScyllaDB cluster through ScyllaDB Manager’s sctool.


ScyllaDB Manager is free to use for all customers up to 5 nodes for clusters built with ScyllaDB Open Source. Customers using ScyllaDB Enterprise can connect an unlimited number of nodes with clusters deployed across multiple datacenters.
