IBM had previously used only Apache Cassandra and HBase as storage back-ends for the graph databases it makes available on IBM Cloud. Having heard about the advantages of Scylla, IBM’s Open Tech and Performance teams conducted a series of tests to compare Scylla with HBase and Apache Cassandra.
In the context of graph databases, the performance of your storage backend is paramount. In the world of edges and vertices, graphs (and the data required to support them) can grow exponentially in a point-to-point fashion. In their talk at Scylla Summit 2017, Ted Chang and Chin Huang, both engineers at IBM, decided to add Scylla to the mix of backends which has traditionally included Cassandra and HBase. They ran test scenarios which covered high volume reads and writes, and provided comparative test results for the three backends, along with lessons learned for each.

At Scylla Summit 2017, participants will join NoSQL developers and users from start-ups and the enterprise for interesting talk topics such as monitoring, improving latencies, performance, and their personal journey to Scylla. Let’s begin the interview and learn more about what David and Keith will be presenting at the Summit.
With the Compose Data Base as a Service (DBaaS) platform, operators and developers do not need to spend valuable time setting up and configuring infrastructure – instead they can use their time and skills to manage and innovate applications for their customers.
