Empowering the DynamoDB Application Developer with Scylla Alternator

Nadav Har'El, ScyllaDB

12 minutesJanuary 9, 2021

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 Scylla’s Alternator, which provides the same API as DynamoDB but aims to empower the application developer. In this presentation we will survey some of Scylla 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, Scylla Alternator provides the developer with strong observability tools. The insights provided by these tools can detect bottlenecks, improve performance and even lower its cost.
