Is incremental change a bad thing? The answer, as with most things in life, is "it depends". In the world of technology specifically, the balance between innovation and tried and true concepts and solutions seems to have tipped in favor of the former. Or at least, that's the impression reading the headlines gives. Good thing there's more to life than headlines.

The ScyllaDB team is one of those who work with their garage doors up and are not necessarily after making headlines. They believe that incremental change is nothing to shun if it leads to steady progress.

Compared to the release of ScyllaDB 5.0 in ScyllaDB Summit 2022, what ScyllaDB Summit 2023 brought could be labeled “incremental change.” But this is just the tip of the iceberg, as there's more than meets the eye here.

We caught up with ScyllaDB CEO and co-founder Dor Laor to discuss what kept the team busy in 2022, how people are using ScyllaDB, as well as trends and tradeoffs in the world of high performance compute and storage.

Orchestrate all the Things

Connecting the dots with George Anadiotis: Analyst, Consultant, Engineer, Founder, Host, Researcher, and Writer.

Stories about Tech, Data, AI and Media, and how they flow into each other shaping our lives.

I’ve engaged from the likes of Gary Marcus and Andrew Ng to emerging thinkers and innovators across multiple domains.

My stories have been featured on ZDNet and VentureBeat, and are syndicated across DZone, Hackernoon, Medium and Substack.

Some might call this futurism; let’s just say it’s connecting the dots

Many conversations have a technical focus. Most also examine business perspectives and use cases, while others are socio-technical.

Some are analyses on emerging themes – picking them up early, featuring expert comment, or offering alternative takes.

Others cover breaking news, typically also featuring the people behind them plus some analysis. There are some book reviews as well.

I focus on the connection between data, analytics, data science, graphs, machine learning and AI and their impact on society and business.

I have been covering topics related to:

  • AI and Machine Learning
  • Data, Analytics and Data Science
  • Knowledge Graphs, Graph Databases, Graph AI & Data Science
  • Innovation, and a wide array of technologies such as Blockchain, Cloud, Observability, IoT, Open Data and Open Source, Social Media and Software Engineering.
