Keynote - Prepare to Love Scylla Even More
The ScyllaDB team has accomplished a lot since our last user conference. For example, our DynamoDB API is now GA, running on any cloud or on-prem, and certified as AWS Outposts ready. Our team is busy working on even bigger advancements to widen the gap between Scylla and other NoSQL databases. Join ScyllaDB CEO and co-founder Dor Laor to hear about these new initiatives and to take a look at our product roadmap.

Keynote - Testing Scylla with Jepsen
Jepsen is a tool for testing databases, combining fault injection, generative testing, and sophisticated safety checkers to find concurrency bugs and availability issues. We worked with the Scylla team to identify multiple safety issues in Scylla's lightweight transactions (LWT) layer, including split-brain behavior and write loss in healthy clusters. In this talk, we'll discuss testing techniques more generally, and what we found (and what was fixed!) in ScyllaDB.

Raft in Scylla
Agreement in a distributed system is complicated but required. Scylla gained lightweight transactions through Paxos but the latter has a cost of 3X roundtrips. Raft can allow consistent transactions without the performance penalty. Beyond LWT, we plan to integrate Raft with most aspects of Scylla making a leap forward in manageability and consistency

Zillow: Optimistic Concurrency Using Write-time Timestamps
Consuming messages from multiple sources in a scalable service sharing the same Scylla cluster can be problematic, especially when those sources provide data from two queues each and cannot deliver guaranteed in-order messages. At Zillow, we provide the Scylla write timestamp and employ a couple other tricks at Zillow to provide correct and consistent data to our consuming services and avoid doing transactions. Additionally, our data model is a simple compound key that contains a large binary Avro document.

Empowering the DynamoDB Application Developer with Alternator
Getting started with AWS DynamoDB™ is famously easy, but as an application grows and evolves it often starts to struggle with DynamoDB’s limitations. We introduce Scylla’s Alternator, which provides the same API as DynamoDB but aims to empower the application developer. In this presentation we will survey some of Alternator’s developer-centered features: Alternator lets you test and eventually deploy your application anywhere, on any public cloud or private cluster. It efficiently supports multiple tables so it does not require difficult single-table design. Finally, Alternator provides the developer with strong observability tools. The insights provided by these tools can detect bottlenecks, improve performance and even lower its cost.

Broadpeak: Building a Video Streaming Testing Framework with Seastar
At Broadpeak, we initiated an effort to use an in-house benchmarking tool built upon Seastar. Our benchmarking tool emulates thousands of HLS or DASH video clients benefiting from the asynchronous programming model of Seastar with capabilities similar to JMeter but with complete support for HTTP/2, as well as high performance thanks to an extensive use of the native stack based on TCP. We tested up to 170 Gbps HTTP/1.1 traffic and 100+ Gbps HTTP/2 on a single dual-socket server. This shows that Seastar is well suited for applications beyond servers. During the presentation, we will highlight some limitations of Seastar we identified for such kind of client applications and the fixes we made.
