Comcast on Sprinting from Cassandra to ScyllaDB

Phillip Zimich, Comcast20:41November 22, 2019

Comcast’s X1 platform supports more than 30 million set top boxes and another 15 million more “second screen” devices used on a monthly basis. Their X1 Scheduler processes over 2 billion RESTful calls daily. To meet that scale, the X1 Scheduler uses multiple datastore technologies, including Cassandra, MongoDB, Elasticsearch and ScyllaDB. Learn how ScyllaDB was introduced into the Comcast NoSQL ecosystem earlier this year, and how they anticipate saving over 60% of their Cassandra operating costs once the migration is complete. Learn the methodology Comcast used through their evaluation, risk analysis and testing processes, plus details of their benchmarking, migration and deployment plans.
