This is Part 2 in a series on Thrift support in Scylla. Part 1 is here.
Thrift is the original Cassandra protocol. It’s a software framework for back-end services developed at Facebook, and now an Apache project. New Cassandra applications use the CQL query language, but because Thrift was heavily used in Apache Cassandra’s early years, several important integrations depend on it. Some examples are:
The Scylla team is pleased to announce the release of Scylla 1.2.2, a bugfix release of the Scylla 1.2 stable branch. Release 1.2.2, like all past and future 1.x.y releases, is backward compatible and supports rolling upgrades.
We are excited to be hosting our first Scylla Summit on September 6th in San Jose. Many topics will be covered, including materialized views.
We’re having a Scylla conference this fall—featuring the latest on how NoSQL projects at companies including Kenshoo, Eniro, Mogujie, AppNexus And IBM’s Compose are doing NoSQL faster and better with Scylla.
The Scylla team is pleased to announce the release of Scylla 1.1.3, a bugfix release of the Scylla 1.1 stable branch. Release 1.1.3, like all past and future 1.x.y releases, is backward compatible and supports rolling upgrade. All the fixes below are also included in the stable 1.2.1 release. It is recommended to migrate to the 1.2 release as soon as possible.

The Scylla team is pleased to announce the release of Scylla 1.2, the third production-ready Scylla minor release. Scylla is an open source NoSQL database compatible with Apache Cassandra, with superior performance and consistent low latency. From now on, only critical bugs (showstoppers) will be fixed in branch-1.2.x. We will continue to fix bugs and add features on the master branch toward 1.2 and beyond. Followup minor releases (1.3, 1.4 etc) will be time-based releases, closed at the end of each month; Scylla 1.3 is due July 2016.
In this post we will walk through an investigation of latency spikes observed in the Scylla 1.0.x version family, which are linked to the scylla-jmx service running alongside the Scylla server on the same system. We will show how the scheduler can be tuned to reduce latency spikes. Scylla 1.2, which is at the release candidate stage this week, will have all relevant fixes. Users of that version won’t have to do anything. Scylla 1.2 is scheduled for release in about a week.
