ScyllaDB is a wide column store that scales both up and out. You access it using CQL (Cassandra Query Language), which is SQL-like. It runs on Linux based systems and supports both eventual and immediate consistency. Because everything is asynchronous there is no locking, which is good for performance, but the product has lightweight transaction capabilities so that it remains suitable for transaction processing.
