Cassandra vs Scylla: What are the differences?

Cassandra: A partitioned row store. Rows are organized into tables with a required primary key. Partitioning means that Cassandra can distribute your data across multiple machines in an application-transparent matter. Cassandra will automatically repartition as machines are added and removed from the cluster. Row store means that like relational databases, Cassandra organizes data by rows and columns. The Cassandra Query Language (CQL) is a close relative of SQL; Scylla: Next Generation Cassandra. Real-time big data database, with scale-up performance of 1,000,000 IOPS per node, scale-out to 100s of nodes and 99 latency of less than 1 msec.

Cassandra and Scylla can be categorized as "Databases" tools.

Cassandra and Scylla are both open source tools. Cassandra with 5.27K GitHub stars and 2.35K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Scylla with 5.18K GitHub stars and 615 GitHub forks.

Uber Technologies, Facebook, and Spotify are some of the popular companies that use Cassandra, whereas Scylla is used by Investing.com, Dstillery, and Yieldbot. Cassandra has a broader approval, being mentioned in 342 company stacks & 240 developers stacks; compared to Scylla, which is listed in 11 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.

        HBase
        Apache HBase is an open-source, distributed, versioned, column-oriented store modeled after Google' Bigtable: A Distributed Storage System for Structured Data by Chang et al. Just as Bigtable leverages the distributed data storage provided by the Google File System, HBase provides Bigtable-like capabilities on top of Apache Hadoop.
        Hadoop
        The Apache Hadoop software library is a framework that allows for the distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of computers using simple programming models. It is designed to scale up from single servers to thousands of machines, each offering local computation and storage.
        Redis
        Redis is an open source, BSD licensed, advanced key-value store. It is often referred to as a data structure server since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets and sorted sets.
        Couchbase
        Developed as an alternative to traditionally inflexible SQL databases, the Couchbase NoSQL database is built on an open source foundation and architected to help developers solve real-world problems and meet high scalability demands.
        MySQL
        The MySQL software delivers a very fast, multi-threaded, multi-user, and robust SQL (Structured Query Language) database server. MySQL Server is intended for mission-critical, heavy-load production systems as well as for embedding into mass-deployed software.

        How developers use Cassandra and Scylla

        Soundcloud uses CassandraCassandra

        Stitch is a wrapper around a Cassandra database. It has a web application that provides read-access to the counts through an HTTP API. The counts are written to Cassandra in two distinct ways, and it's possible to use either or both of them:

        • Real-time: For real-time updates, Stitch has a processor application that handles a stream of events coming from a broker and increments the appropriate counts in Cassandra.

        • Batch: The batch part is a MapReduce job running on Hadoop that reads event logs, calculates the overall totals, and bulk loads this into Cassandra.

        ScyllaDB provides all of the goodies of Apache Cassandra, including HA, multiDC, replication sharding and so forth. The implementation is in C++ and the internal design is better and thus it achieves 10X the throughput, low 99% latency and more

        Cassandra is our data management workhorse. It handles all our key-value services, supports time-series data storage and retrieval, securely stores all our audit trails, and backs our Datomic database.

        While we experimented with Cassandra in the past, we are no longer using it. It is, however, open for consideration in future projects.

        We are using Cassandra in a few of our apps. One of them is as a count service application to track the number of shares, clicks.. etc
