ScyllaDB takes on Amazon with new DynamoDB migration tool

There are a lot of open supply databases out there, and ScyllaDB, a NoSQL selection, is seeking to differentiate itself by attracting none other than Amazon customers. Nowadays, it announced a DynamoDB migration tool to enable Amazon clients move to its item.

It’s a bold move, but Scylla, which has a totally free open supply item along with paid versions, has constantly had a penchant for going immediately after larger players. It has had a tool to enable move Cassandra customers to ScyllaDB for some time.

CEO Dor Laor says DynamoDB clients can now also migrate current code with tiny modification. “If you’;re using DynamoDB today, you will still be using the same drivers and the same client code. In fact, you don’;t need to modify your client code one bit. You just need to redirect access to a different IP address running Scylla,” Laor told TechCrunch.

He says that the cause clients would want to switch to Scylla is simply because it presents a more rapidly and less expensive encounter by using the hardware much more effectively. That suggests organizations can run the very same workloads on fewer machines, and do it more rapidly, which in the end should really translate to reduced fees.

The corporation also announced a $25 million Series C extension led by Eight Roads Ventures. Current investors Bessemer Venture Partners, Magma Venture Partners, Qualcomm Ventures and TLV Partners also participated. Scylla has raised a total of $60 million, according to the corporation.

The startup has been about for 6 years and clients include things like Comcast, GE, IBM and Samsung. Laor says that Comcast went from operating Cassandra on 400 machines to operating the very same workloads with Scylla on just 60.

Laor is playing the extended game in the database industry, and it’s not about taking on Cassandra, DynamoDB or any other person item. “Our main goal is to be the default NoSQL database where if someone has big data, real-time workloads, they’;ll think about us first, and we will become the default.”
