Scylla vs DynamoDB – Database Benchmark

Scylla and DynamoDB are closely related. Both are based on the Dynamo paper, which defined a new class of NoSQL database. To provide a fair comparison of Scylla Cloud and DynamoDB, we relied on the industry standard Yahoo! Cloud Serving Benchmark (YCSB).

In this performance benchmark, you’ll discover how Scylla Cloud excels by providing:

  • 20x better throughput in a hot-partition test
  • Average replication latency of 82ms, versus DynamoDB’s average latency of 370ms
  • Freedom of choice to run hybrid deployments, with no cloud vendor lock-in
  • All at 1/7 the expense of DynamoDB, when running equivalent workloads
