ScyllaDB
Scylla is well suited for high-throughput scenarios where keyed data must be read or written with consistently low latency. It's less appropriate for use cases requiring relational queries, secondary indexes, or more structured data sets.

  • When we restart the DBaaS instance, it seems like we had to add the NIC network back again. I'm not sure if it's specific to our instance configuration!

ScyllaDB
Very easy-to-understand syntax--uses CQL (same as Cassandra), which has many similarities to standard SQL. There are some gotchas, however, that must be known during schema development.

Alternatives Considered
Oracle
I would prefer the oracle database as service where my complete implementation is on Oracle Cloud Platform and as BI Implementation where datawarehouse is built on oracle database.

ScyllaDB
Scylla has a quick learning curve (same as Cassandra) compared to other proprietary solutions like BigTable. It supports higher throughput and lower latency that other NoSQL databases like MongoDB, which sacrifice those features for more flexibility and unique features.
