In this blog post, we will look into Scylla’s paging, address some of the earlier problems with it, and describe how we solved those issues in our recently released Scylla 2.2. In particular, we will look at performance problems related to big partitions and how we alleviated them to improve throughput by as much as 2.5X. We will restrict ourselves to queries of a single partition or a discrete set of partitions (i.e., “IN” queries). We will address scanning queries, which return a range of partitions, in a separate post. Prior to Scylla 2.2, Scylla’s paging was stateless. This meant […]
The Scylla team is pleased to announce the release of Scylla 2.2, a production-ready Scylla Open Source minor release.
The Scylla team is pleased to announce the release of Scylla 2.1.6, a bugfix release of the Scylla 2.1 stable branch. Release 2.1.6, like all past and future 2.x.y releases, is backward compatible and supports rolling upgrades.
Benchmarking is no easy task, especially when comparing databases with different “engines” under the hood. You want your benchmark to be fair, to run each database on its optimal setup and hardware, and to keep the comparison as apples-to-apples as possible. (For more on this topic, see our webinar on the “Do’s and Don’ts of Benchmarking Databases.”) We kept this in mind when conducting this Scylla versus Cassandra benchmark, which compares Scylla and Cassandra on AWS EC2, using cassandra-stress as the load generator. Most benchmarks compare different software stacks on the same hardware and try to max out the throughput. […]
The Scylla team is pleased to announce the release of Scylla Enterprise 2018.1.4, a production-ready Scylla Enterprise minor release. Scylla Enterprise 2018.1.4 is a bug fix release for the 2018.1 branch, the latest stable branch of Scylla Enterprise. More about Scylla Enterprise here.
Scylla came out on top and is now in production at Grab. In this post, you can learn more about Grab’s journey to Scylla and see what they liked about it.
In this installment of the MMS series, we look at the features of the Mutant Monitoring Web Console written in Node.js and how it works.
The Scylla team is pleased to announce the release of Scylla 2.1.5, a bugfix release of the Scylla 2.1 stable branch. Release 2.1.5, like all past and future 2.x.y releases, is backward compatible and supports rolling upgrades.
Explore the main differences between i3.16xlarge in the i3 family and i3.metal on AWS. Will removing the virtualization layer bring better performance?
In this installment of the MMS series, we take a look at how to store binary blobs into a Scylla cluster using the Java programming language.
