Scylla formerly known as Cloudius Systems, is a drop-in Apache Cassandra alternative big data database that powers applications with ultra-low latency and extremely high throughput.

ScyllaDB produces a NoSQL database compatible with Apache Cassandra at 10x the throughput and jaw dropping low latency.

ScyllaDB was founded in 2012 by Dor Laor & Avi Kivity. The company is headquartered in Palo Alto, California with an additional office in Herzliya, Tel Aviv District, IL.

Scylla provides the NoSQL database platform your applications require to scale out and up linearly.

Scylla reimplemented Apache Cassandra from scratch using C++ instead of Java to increase the raw performance and utilization of modern multi-core servers and, through self-tuning and improved uptime, minimize the overhead to DevOps.
