Rohit has spoken at multiple Scylla Summits, and in 2018 his work at Nauto was awarded the Scylla User Award for More Interesting Technical Use Case. How we build trips consistently in a distributed system Early on, I noticed that one of our services would often have errors in retrieving data from the database. Upon investigation, we discovered that some of the queries were being run with full consistency, which in this case was the equivalent of enforcing that if any single node in a […]
FireEye is a NASDAQ-traded cybersecurity firm that offers a broad portfolio ranging from a robust enterprise threat intelligence platform, hardware appliances to managed defenses and security consulting. Its customers span the gamut from global telecommunications giants to healthcare providers, universities to research facilities, financial institutions to school systems, municipalities, states, and government ministries. In such an environment, where being wrong only once can lead to damaging and even dangerous breaches, security analytics must keep up with the velocity and volume of the threats faced at Internet scale. At Scylla Summit 2019, Rahul Gaikwad and Krishna Palati of the FireEye Threat […]
AWS announced their new generation of Graviton2 System on a Chip (SoC), based on the Arm Neoverse N1 core. AWS claims they are much faster than their predecessors, a claim that we put to the test in this article.
The Scylla team is pleased to announce the availability of Scylla Open Source 3.1.0, a production-ready release of our open source NoSQL database. Scylla is an open source NoSQL database offering the same Cassandra Query Language (CQL) interface as Apache Cassandra, along with the same horizontal scale-out and fault-tolerance characteristics. Implemented from scratch in C++ with a close-to-the-hardware architecture, Scylla delivers 10X the throughput, consistent, low single-digit latencies, and significantly reduces the number of database nodes you require and self-optimizes to dynamic workloads and various hardware combinations. With the release of Scylla Open Source 3.1, we’ve introduced a number of […]
The I3en family is a class of instances clearly targeted at storage-intensive workloads, but CPUs are still needed to process that data. The largest of the I3en, i3en.24xlarge, ships with 48 cores of the Xeon Platinum 8175M, clocking at 2.50GHz.
