Scylla Alternator: The Open Source DynamoDB-compatible API
Project Alternator is an open-source project for an Amazon DynamoDB™-compatible API written in C++. The goal of this project is to deliver an open source alternative to Amazon’s DynamoDB, deployable wherever a user would want: on-premises, on other public clouds like Microsoft Azure or Google Cloud Platform, or still on AWS (for users who wish to take advantage of other aspects of Amazon’s market-leading cloud ecosystem, such as the high-density i3en instances).
DynamoDB users can keep their same client code unchanged.
Scylla Alternator is available as GA for Scylla Open Source 4.0 and Scylla Enterprise 2020.1.0
