ScyllaDB today announced that its centralized cluster administration and task automation tool, Scylla Manager, is now available to users of the company’s powerful open source NoSQL database. Previously available only to paid customers using Scylla Enterprise, Scylla Manager brings greater predictability and control to Scylla-based environments. For users of Scylla Open Source, Scylla Manager is limited to 5 node connections at a time.

Scylla Open Source users can download Scylla Manager at:

Scylla offers the horizontal scale-out and fault-tolerance of Apache Cassandra, but delivers as much as 10X the throughput and consistent, low single-digit latencies. Implemented from scratch in C++, Scylla’s close-to-the-hardware design significantly reduces the number of database nodes an organization requires and self-optimizes to dynamic workloads and various hardware configurations.

Scylla Manager lets Scylla users easily manage their Scylla clusters from a central control point, providing the ability to schedule repeating tasks such as database repairs, health checks, and soon backup and restore. It helps to ensure that clusters are running at full efficiency, reducing operational costs and maximizing team productivity. Scylla Manager joins a growing list of Scylla management and monitoring software, including the open source Scylla Monitoring Stack, which provides cluster metrics and graphical dashboards via Prometheus and Grafana.

“We’re glad to provide our rapidly growing open source community with tools that help to make them even more successful,” said Dor Laor, CEO and co-founder of ScyllaDB. “A big part of that is helping users manage their Scylla clusters in open source deployments with Scylla Manager.”
