ScyllaDB has arrived on Compose and it already looks like it's set to be a favorite with polyglot persistent developers. The wide-column-store is directly compatible with the Java based Apache Cassandra but being implemented in C++ and focused on optimizing performance it is both faster and smaller than its inspiration. ScyllaDB's own benchmarks shows it outperforming Cassandra by a magnitude.
But benchmarks are not enough to test a database with your workloads. That's why Scylla on Compose is the quickest way to get your data on a three node cluster ready to run with your data. It comes with Compose's worry free deployments that include high-availability configurations, enhanced security, automated backups, and easy to use web administration console.
We're bringing ScyllaDB to both Compose and Compose Enterprise so you can develop your applications with the auto-scaling safety of Compose hosted. When you want to move to your own dedicated cloud switch to Compose Enterprise's harnessed and managed cloud power.
On Compose hosted, we start offering ScyllaDB as a beta, with a three node cluster, 1 GB of RAM per node and 10 GB of storage for $189 a month. That includes 3 haproxy portals to connect the database securely to the public internet.
Each extra gigabyte of storage is then just $18 a month extra and comes with 102 MB of extra RAM for each node. The cluster is configured for high availability and the price includes all the backups that you need and all the rest of the Compose service that other database users already love.
So if you have been thinking of Cassandra but want more performance, less fighting the Java memory footprint and have your production cluster up in minutes, try ScyllaDB at Compose.
