How to Size Your Scylla Cluster

Sizing a database cluster makes or breaks your application. Too small and you could sustain spikes in usage and recover from a node loss or an operational slowdown. Too big and your cluster will cost more and waste valuable human resources. Since different workloads have different requirements, successful sizing of your application should be optimized for both throughput and latency performance. However, in many cases, the requirements for each contradicts each other. In this talk, we will explain how to remediate the contradicting forces and build a sustainable cluster to meet both performance and resiliency requirements.
