Scylla is a highly scalable, highly performant NoSQL database. But just how fast can fast get? And what happens when you run it on a bare metal cloud like Packet? We set out to design a test that would showcase the combined abilities of Scylla as a database and Packet’s fastest instances.
Today we are releasing a new data integrity testing suite for the open source community. Those who will have the most direct utility for this software will be those testing Scylla and Cassandra databases, or, more broadly, other CQL-compliant databases.
AWS announced their new generation of Graviton2 System on a Chip (SoC), based on the Arm Neoverse N1 core. AWS claims they are much faster than their predecessors, a claim that we put to the test in this article.
Amazon definitely piqued our interest by announcing their new Managed Cassandra Service (MCS) yesterday. As a database vendor, we’ve been asked by many about our view and even whether they’re running Scylla under the hood since they promise single digit latency.

The fun days provided the perfect atmosphere to get to know our colleagues and allowed everyone to bond and develop long lasting friendships. Our internal event planning team paid attention to every detail […]
