Empowering the DynamoDB Application Developer with ScyllaDB Alternator

Nadav Har'El, ScyllaDB12 minutes

Getting started with AWS DynamoDB™ is famously easy, but as an application grows and evolves it often starts to struggle with DynamoDB’s limitations. We introduce ScyllaDB’s Alternator, which provides the same API as DynamoDB but aims to empower the application developer. In this presentation we will survey some of ScyllaDB Alternator’s developer-centered features: Alternator lets you test and eventually deploy your application anywhere, on any public cloud or private cluster. It efficiently supports multiple tables so it does not require difficult single-table design. Finally, ScyllaDB Alternator provides the developer with strong observability tools. The insights provided by these tools can detect bottlenecks, improve performance and even lower its cost.
