ScyllaDB Announces NoSQL Database as a Service Now Available on Google Cloud

Scylla Cloud extends deployment options for high-performance NoSQL DBaaS

Palo Alto, California, UNITED STATES

PALO ALTO, Calif., Aug. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ScyllaDB announced today that companies can now run their globally distributed workloads using Scylla Cloud on Google Cloud. A highly performant, fully managed NoSQL database as a service (DBaaS) based on the powerful Scylla Enterprise NoSQL database, Scylla Cloud delivers high throughput and predictable low-latency performance while minimizing data infrastructure costs and freeing teams from administrative overhead.

With its close-to-the-hardware, shared-nothing design, Scylla empowers organizations to build and operate real-time applications at global scale, all for a fraction of the cost of other DBaaS options. Scylla Cloud spares IT organizations from database management tasks by providing fully managed Scylla clusters with automatic backup, repairs, performance optimization, security hardening, 24/7 maintenance and support.

“Data continues to be a significant driver of digital transformation for businesses of all types,” said Ritika Suri, Director, Data Management Technology Partners at Google Cloud. “We're delighted that ScyllaDB will make its capabilities in high scalability and low latency deployable on Google Cloud's scalable, secure and reliable infrastructure.”

“We are excited to partner with ScyllaDB to maximize the value of this new relationship with Google Cloud,” said Miles Ward, CTO at SADA, an award-winning Google Cloud Premier Partner. “With Scylla Cloud running on Google Cloud, customer’s data resides in the same infrastructure as other Google Cloud services and applications. That means developers can spin up clusters in minutes and instantly gain access to the high throughput and predictable low-latency performance of Scylla Cloud.”

Scylla Cloud running on Google Cloud will provide the full range of capabilities and benefits available, including:

  • Scale Up and Out: Scylla’s performance grows linearly with larger compute instances and additional cores. This translates to fewer nodes to provision and significantly lower cost to use Scylla Cloud compared to other NoSQL DBaaS options.
  • Security: Among managed DBaaS offerings, Scylla Cloud uniquely provides single-tenant hardened security, with encrypted data at rest, data in transit, encrypted backups and key management. Additionally, Scylla Cloud is SOC2 Type II certified.
  • Hot Fixes: Updates are applied transparently to a running system, ensuring that the latest features and security updates are always installed.
  • Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) Peering: Applications can connect securely to the Scylla Cloud environment, and can use private IPv4 or IPv6 addresses to avoid routing traffic over the Internet.
  • Highly Available: Scylla Cloud automatically replicates data across multiple availability zones within a region, totally eliminating single points of failure. Scylla Cloud customers can add replicas and expand clusters across data centers as needed.
  • Automated Backups: Scylla Cloud offers automated backups directly to Google Cloud Storage.
  • Automated Monitoring: The Scylla Cloud engineering team also monitors your clusters 24x7x365 to ensure your database conforms to your SLAs. Metrics in Prometheus format can also be provided for consolidated monitoring by customers.

“As companies modernize their applications, they have a critical need to run a DBaaS on their platform of choice,” said Dor Laor, CEO of ScyllaDB. “Many companies have adopted Google Cloud, and we’re thrilled to announce they can now get the benefits of managed Scylla running on a platform they already know and trust.”
