Most databases are based on architectures that pre-date advances to modern hardware. This results in performance issues, the need to overprovision, and a high total cost of ownership. In this webinar we will discuss the advances to modern server technology and take a deep dive into Scylla’s shard-per-core architecture and our asynchronous engine, the Seastar framework.

Join us to learn how Seastar (and Scylla):.

  • Avoid locks and contention on the CPU level
  • Bypass kernel bottlenecks
  • Implement its per-core shared-nothing autosharding mechanism
  • Utilize modern storage hardware
  • Leverage NUMA to get the best RAM performance
  • Balance your data across CPUs and nodes for best and smoothest performance

Plus we’ll cover the advantages of unlocking vertical scalability.
