Quarantine DB Talk 2020: ScyllaDB — No-Compromise Performance
ScyllaDB is a distributed NoSQL database that provides high availability, multiple consistency models, and high performance. This talk will cover how ScyllaDB approaches performance: thread-per-core, fully asynchronous operation, and kernel bypass.
This talk is part of the Quarantine Database Tech Talk Seminar Series.
Avi Kivity, CTO of ScyllaDB, is known mostly for starting the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) project, the hypervisor underlying many production clouds. He has worked for Qumranet and Red Hat as KVM maintainer until December 2012. Avi is now CTO of ScyllaDB, a company that seeks to bring the same kind of innovation to the public cloud space.
