What’s New at Scylla University — June 2021

Hands-on Labs for Scylla in Your Browser

  • Quick Wins Lab: In this lab, you will see how to quickly start Scylla by running a single instance. You will then see how to run the CQL Shell and perform some basic CQL operations such as creating a table, inserting data, and reading it.
  • High Availability Lab: This lab demonstrates, using a hands-on example, how Availability works in Scylla. You’ll try setting the Replication Factor and Consistency Levels in a three-node cluster and you’ll see how they affect read and write operations when all of the nodes in the cluster are up, and also when some of them are unavailable.
  • Basic Data Modeling Lab: Data modeling is the process of identifying the entities in our domain, the relationships between these entities, and how they will be stored in the database. In this lab, you’ll learn some important terms such as Keyspace, Table, Column, Row, Primary Key, Partition Key, Compound Key, and Clustering Key. You’ll run different CQL queries to understand those terms better and get some hands-on experience with a live cluster.
