ScyllaDB is an open source first company committed to shared innovation and transparency that leads to continually improving the features of its NoSQL database
This page is a point-in-time snapshot of our current efforts and plans. However, our plans are always responsive to customer input, market evolution, and development constraints of database technologies.
We have an additional set of advanced NoSQL database features that go beyond Apache Cassandra, for example:
ScyllaDB Open Source uses a familiar X.Y.Z release numbering scheme, with X being the major release, Y being the minor release and Z being the maintenance or bug fix release.
ScyllaDB major releases have historically been made available roughly every year and a half. Between major releases we release periodic ScyllaDB minor versions, which include both bug fixes and new features. We support only the two latest minor releases. So, for example, if we released ScyllaDB Open Source X.3, we would support X.3 and X.2; X.1 would no longer be supported. We produce bug fix-only (“.Z”) releases regularly between minor releases.
Complex features for more advanced database architectures will be flagged as experimental for one release, marking them as completed, but not thoroughly tested yet. Also, some experimental features may be subject to change as we discover how it performs in customer environments. At the same time, we put most of our effort into internal optimizations and performance improvements. You can read more about all the rigors we put ScyllaDB through on our testing page.
Planned features for ScyllaDB Open Source 4.x and 5.x
We are invested in improving database technologies in 2021 and beyond, including an improved disk format, different database enhancements and integration with analytics and search.

ScyllaDB Manager is a centralized, highly available, NoSQL database management solution for multiple ScyllaDB clusters. It is part of the ScyllaDB Enterprise offering and is also available to ScyllaDB Open Source users (limited to 5 nodes).
ScyllaDB Manager 2.x now includes recurrent backups to AWS S3 and a new ScyllaDB Agent.
While the list below includes advanced database management features visible to the users, we put most of our effort into under the hood optimizations, performance improvements, and autonomous database functionality.
ScyllaDB Monitoring Stack is a bundle of three components (a Prometheus metric collector, alert manager, and Grafana 6 dashboards) that can be deployed as containers or directly onto a host. It collects metrics and events through the ScyllaDB Agent from nodes and from ScyllaDB Manager.
The stack empowers DevOps, Infrastructure Operations, and Database Administrators to quickly find and fix issues impacting the performance of their ScyllaDB cluster. Teams can drill down from high-level dashboards to detailed metrics to determine next steps.
ScyllaDB Monitoring 3.2 introduces dashboard annotations for repair and backup as well as a new collection of dashboard screens.
ScyllaDB Operator (Preview) is a new tool for automating the deployment of ScyllaDB clusters within a kubernetes environment. It currently it supports:
