Since its inception, Scylla has offered a compelling alternative to Apache Cassandra, providing better performance for a lower cost of ownership.

With Scylla Open Source 4.0 we continue to extend our CQL interface features and capabilities and also now provide an open source alternative to DynamoDB, allowing you to run your workloads anywhere, on any cloud provider, or on premises.

Join ScyllaDB co-founders, CTO Avi Kivity and CEO Dor Laor, for a look at the new features in Scylla Open Source 4.0, and architectural and cost comparisons with the coming Cassandra 4.0.

Topics will include:

  • Improved consistency with our new Lightweight Transactions
  • Scylla Operator for Kubernetes
  • How we stack up against Apache Cassandra 4.0
  • Our “run anywhere” DynamoDB alternative
