Cloud Database Services Provider ScyllaDB Launches New DaaS Offering
Cloud database services provider ScyllaDB has announced the launch of a new Database-as-a-Service (DaaS) offering. ScyllaDB, which has headquarters in Palo Alto, California, United States, was established in 2012. The company specializes in NoSQL and column-store database services including ScyllaDB, a “Cassandra compatible NoSQL database” that can scale up to “lMM transactions a second per server”. ScyllaDB’s solutions leverage “Big Data” technology with a strong learning towards Open Source solutions. Scylla NoSQL database is now available as a fully managed service and sets “a new standard for DBaaS performance, scale and cost”.

Scalable and cost-effective, Scylla NoSQL database is a fully managed version of Scylla Enterprise. The solution is utilized by companies in industries such as manufacturing, advertising, IoT, entertainment and social media. The “Scylla Cloud” can handle “petabytes of data with case” and with a “close-to-the-metal” design can manage up to “millions of operations per second” on one 96-vCPU node. As a result, developers can easily deploy and scale applications and the solution lends itself towards rapid prototyping.

Scylla Cloud offers CQL drivers for Java, Go, Python, C++, C#, PHP, Ruby, Rust and Node.js and can address the same workloads Amazon’s DynamoDB and Google Cloud BigTable manage, but at “roughly one-fifth the price and one-third the latency”. It is now available on Amazon Web Services (AWS) regions that include US East/West, Germany, Ireland, Singapore and Japan. More regions are in the pipeline, as is operation on Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

“Database users no longer have to choose between the convenience of cloud services and the ability to keep costs predictable and low,” suggested ScyllaDB’s co-founder and CEO, Dor Laor. “Existing cloud databases are prohibitively expensive, requiring wasteful overprovisioning, and all too often they can’t meet the SLAs of today’s real-time applications. Many are proprietary top to bottom, and lock enterprises into a specific cloud service with no exit path. With our roots in open source, we built Scylla Cloud to fix all that.”
