View a Complimentary Live Webinar Sponsored by ScyllaDB

The process of optimizing shard-aware drivers for ScyllaDB has involved several initiatives, often necessitating a complete rewrite from the ground up. Discover the efforts put into enhancing the performance of ScyllaDB drivers with a focus on Rust, and how its code base will serve as a foundation for drivers using other language bindings in the future. This session emphasizes the performance gains achieved by harnessing the power of the asynchronous Tokio framework as the backbone of a new, high-performance driver while thoughtfully architecting and optimizing various components of the driver.
