Cost-efficiency and performance are critical for big data analytics. For this reason a recent blog post from ScyllaDB guys caught our attention.

The test rig was a beefy and expensive packet.com cluster: 83 n2.xlarge.x86 instances, 28 cores and 384RAM each. This is a nice demo of ScyllaDB cluster management.
