ScyllaDB, an open-source database for data-intensive applications that require high performance and low latency, is an excellent match for Rust. Similar to the Rust programming language and the Tokio framework, ScyllaDB is built on an asynchronous, non-blocking runtime that works well for building highly-reliable low-latency distributed applications.
The ScyllaDB team has developed the scylla-rust-driver, an open-source ScyllaDB (and Apache Cassandra) driver for Rust. It’s written in pure Rust with a fully async API using Tokio. You can read more regarding its benchmark results, plus how our developers solved a performance regression.
