Scylla vs Bigtable – Database Benchmark

Scylla and Bigtable are in the same family tree. It’s important to understand the relative performance characteristics of each database in order to choose the best one for your use case.

In this benchmark, we put Scylla Cloud up against Bigtable, working with reasonable, real-world scenarios. To provide a fair comparison, we relied on the industry standard Yahoo! Cloud Serving Benchmark (YCSB). Read it to discover how Scylla:

  • Performs 26X better than Bigtable when applied with real-world, unoptimized data distribution
  • Delivers 26x the throughput, with read latencies 1/800th and write latencies less than 1/100th of Bigtable.
  • Performs better with smaller clusters. BigTable requires 10X as many nodes to accept the same workload as Scylla.
