About ScyllaDB

At ScyllaDB, we carefully apply low-level knowledge to our Big Data technology. Data structures are measured not to cross CPU cachelines, poll-mode drivers are used instead of interrupts, disk accesses are measured for write amplification and caches need to be scan-resistant. We're proud of our very own task scheduler and TCP/IP kernel bypass. We hog the latest C++14 and gcc5.1 for latest and greatest and dream about commodity non-volatile random access memory.
