July 28, 2021 Update

New Features

  • Change Data Capture (CDC): ScyllaDB Cloud now supports CDC, which allows you to observe changes in your data set. These changes can be consumed by other applications and streaming services, such as populating Kafka topics that can then notify other systems. The data is stored in regular ScyllaDB tables (SSTables) and can be queried asynchronously using a standard ScyllaDB/Cassandra CQL driver or ScyllaDB Sink Connector and ScyllaDB CDC Source Connector for roundtrip read and write integration with Apache Kafka. With ScyllaDB’s CDC, you can choose to keep track of the updates (deltas), original values (pre-images), and/or new values (post-images). Data in a CDC table is set to expire with a TTL, minimizing the possibility of a storage overflow.

Deploying in your own AWS account allows you to keep all ScyllaDB resources (EC2, network, S3 buckets, etc.) in your own account, with your own AWS pricing, and your own company policies and geographic regulation, while benefiting from the DBaaS nature of ScyllaDB Cloud (fully maintained, 24/7 support, proactive alerts, transparent upgrades, best practices deployments, and so on).

    To deploy ScyllaDB Cloud in your own account, you are welcome to register in ScyllaDB Cloud and open a support ticket with the request. In the future, this step will be fully automated.

  • Extracting ScyllaDB metrics to your organization centralized monitoring system via Prometheus: ScyllaDB Cloud now supports extracting cluster statistics in Prometheus format. The configuration is done at the cluster level, so you can choose which cluster’s metrics you wish to extract. Extracted statistics can be used either with ScyllaDB Monitoring Stack or with any other monitoring tool that supports the Prometheus format. For example, see our DataDog and ScyllaDB integration blog.
