About the company
Scylla is an Apache Cassandra™ drop-in replacement, written from the ground-up in C++ on top of the Seastar architecture.

With its own IO and CPU schedulers, Scylla provides superior performance with low latencies and smooth throughput. Scylla is available as open source software, as well as through commercial enterprise-grade and managed cloud offerings.
