Scylla Operator For Kubernetes Now Available


ScyllaDB recently announced the general availability of Scylla Operator, a Kubernetes extension that makes it easy to run Scylla clusters in cloud-native environments.

Supporting the wide adoption of Kubernetes, Scylla Operator enables users to create multiple Scylla clusters with a single command, automate deployment across multiple availability zones, scale operations, conduct rolling changes, repairs and upgrades, benefit from auto-healing and perform backups, restorations and more.

At Scylla Summit 2021, ScyllaDB also announced Project Circe, a twelve-month initiative to bring greater consistency, improved elasticity and ease of use to Scylla’s database. Each month ScyllaDB will release a new feature or upgrade to an existing capability, along with numerous smaller quality-of-life improvements.

Other developments under Project Circe will improve throughput, reduce latency and simplify the operational complexity of running a distributed database at scale.

Scylla’s hosted solution, Scylla Cloud, which launched last year on AWS, now runs on Google Cloud Platform (currently in beta). It was the latest in a string of announcements for Scylla Cloud, which was most recently selected as the only NoSQL database certified on the AWS Outposts platform for on-premises managed services.
