Otta's take

Xav Kearney headshot

Xav Kearney

CTO of Otta

SaaS databases are essential services for enterprises to manage their data, but past solutions run on expensive physical hardware that is restricted in terms of processing power. Recent cloud-based NoSQL alternatives such as Amazon's DynamoDB present better solutions for big-data enterprises, but the available options are expensive and not as efficient as they could be.

ScyllaDB provides an open-source NoSQL database that provides a faster, cheaper, and more resource-efficient alternative to existing cloud-based databases. The service uses a node-sharded design that allows each processor core of a computer to handle a different subset of data, providing a storage-efficient real-time database solution for big-data enterprises.

The company has taken a fierce stance against their competition by providing a migration tool that automatically allows DynamoDB users to switch to the significantly cheaper ScyllaDB with minimal code changes requires.
