In a world crowded with database options, why would anyone write a new one?
ScyllaDB co-founders Dor Laor and Avi Kivity have a candid discussion about why they founded ScyllaDB and chose to rewrite Apache Cassandra, achieving ten times the throughput as well as lower latency and jitter, forever ending the compromise between performance and availability.
You will learn:
- How they made design decisions to achieve no-compromise performance and availability
- Why there is such a large gap between Scylla and Cassandra and why you should care
- What Scylla means for non-Cassandra users
Additionally, Dor and Avi demonstrate how to get up and running in no time on a Docker cluster.
