IoT Pioneers Turn to Scylla for Low Latency, Out-of-the-Box Performance at Scale

May 8, 2019

PALO ALTO, Calif., May 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ScyllaDB today announced that IoT companies are increasingly turning to Scylla as the NoSQL database best suited to their unique needs. ScyllaDB’s new IoT customers include Augury, Geosys, GPS Insight, Meshify, Mistaway, Nauto, Sensaphone and many others, including the world’s largest industrial IOT (IIOT) platform.

By some estimates, the Internet of Things generates 5 quintillion bytes of data each day and will encompass 30 billion connected devices by 2020. To monitor and analyze massive amounts of data in real time, IoT platforms need an optimal blend of speed, efficiency and scale with flexible data modeling that supports time-series events.

Machine-health company Augury uses connected sensors and AI to measure vibrations, temperature and ultrasonic and electromagnetic emissions, and diagnose problems before they become serious. Augury relies on Scylla’s real-time database to model machine data and support real-time user queries. By conducting operations and analytics on the same database cluster, Augury has reduced the cost and complexity of its IoT data infrastructure and reduced its management overhead.

“Self-hosting a database can be expensive and requires loads of ongoing maintenance. Scylla is perfect for us since we don’t have the dedicated DevOps resources to babysit our database,” said Amit Ziv-Kenet, Augury’s Backend Tech Lead. “Scylla just runs smoothly and with minimal configuration.”

Nauto, an AI-technology company that improves the safety of commercial fleets today and the autonomous fleets of tomorrow, uses Scylla to analyzes large data sets so that vehicle-related safety incidents can be identified, understood and — in the future — prevented. Ruslan Belkin, Chief Technology Officer at Nauto said, “Migrating to Scylla helps Nauto continue to scale our fleet management services globally.”

GPS Insight provides a fleet intelligence service that combines satellite and cellular data to track trucks, vehicles, trailers and other types of equipment. Doug Stuns, GPS Insight’s Lead Database Architect, stated, “Scylla is the ideal database for IoT in the industry right now.”

“In a connected world, IoT data poses new challenges in scale, price-performance and always-on performance,” said Dor Laor, CEO and co-founder of ScyllaDB. “Scylla is uniquely suited to support IoT data use cases with simple and fast solutions at any scale.”
