The ScyllaDB team began a journey of implementing a better, C++ version of Cassandra with the same API and a promise of 10x the performance more than 6 years ago. Finally, in 2020 the mission of a complete, battle-tested API was done and we even added a compatible DynamoDB API.

All along the team improved not just the performance but other aspects, from shard-aware drivers, heat-based load balancing, and seedless nodes. We’re proud of the result, but our work is far from done. This year, we introduce Raft which allows us to leap beyond the eventual consistency nature of Cassandra. The talk will cover the reasons for the introduction of Raft and how Raft comes into play with regard to consistency, elasticity, and ease of operation of Scylla.
