ScyllaDB Embraces Wasm

Piotr Sarna7 minutesFebruary 9, 2022

WebAssembly, also known as Wasm, is a binary format for representing executable code, designed to be easily embeddable into other projects. It's also a perfect candidate for a user-defined functions (UDFs) back-end due to its ease of integration, performance and popularity. ScyllaDB already supports user-defined functions expressed in WebAssembly in experimental mode, based on an open-source runtime written natively in Rust - Wasmtime. This talk will cover a few examples of how to create Wasm functions in ScyllaDB, how to combine them into powerful user-defined aggregates and what are the future plans of integrating with Wasmtime and Rust even further.
