Scylla Cloud, our fully managed NoSQL service with its DynamoDB and Cassandra APIs, supports extracting cluster metrics in Prometheus format. Prometheus is the open source monitoring solution from the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).
You can now choose where you can deploy your Scylla Cloud database — via your Scylla Cloud account, or in your own AWS account. Deploying in your own AWS account allows you to keep all Scylla resources in your own account, with your own AWS pricing, and your own company policies and geographic regulation.
“Couple clicks. Couple minutes. You can spin up a cluster where you want it, how you want it.” Scylla also provided step-by-step documentation of the migration process. “We had zero downtime. And for that, I think Scylla’s number one.”
As we prepare for Scylla Summit 2019, we are producing a series of blogs highlighting this year’s featured presenters. Today we are speaking with Nadav Harel, a ScyllaDB Distinguished Engineer who will be hosting the session Free and Open DynamoDB API for Everyone, which will take attendees on a tour of Project Alternator, ScyllaDB’s DynamoDB-compatible API.
Looking back at the year and a half since our last round of funding, it’s gratifying to recognize the progress we’ve made in the past 18 months. We grew the number of paying customers by 5X! We’ve advanced 80 places on db-engines. We’ve launched an impressive set of new features and capabilities to tackle whole new use cases, as we’ve documented in more than 100 blog posts!
We’ve written a pretty comprehensive blog about migrating to Scylla in general, but not all of those migration strategies apply to a managed cloud solution. So let’s drill down into specifics and step-by-step instructions targeted directly to your Scylla Cloud success.
Scylla Cloud is continuously enhanced with new capabilities. In this May 2019 update, Scylla Cloud now includes the following features: Two Factor Authentication (2FA), Multi-Data Center Clusters and support for Scylla Enterprise 2019.1.
In this article, we will compare Scylla Cloud and Google Cloud Bigtable. We show that Scylla Cloud is one-fifth the cost of Cloud Bigtable under optimal conditions (perfect uniform distribution) and that when applied to Zipfian distribution, the difference grows to 25x.
We recently launched Scylla Cloud, allowing you to get the most out of Scylla while not having to burden yourself with cluster management tasks. In this blog post we will cover the initial onboarding process, including creating an account and spinning up a cluster.
Today, we publicly announced Scylla Cloud, our fully-managed database as a service (DBaaS). Scylla Cloud is available immediately on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Cloud 2 (EC2) instances—including a developer instance that makes prototyping incredibly affordable. It will soon also run on Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure public cloud platforms.
