Scalar Inc. (Headquarters: Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo, CEO and COO: Wataru Fukatsu, CEO and CTO Hiroyuki Yamada) has released a new major version 3.0 of ScalarDB, a general-purpose transaction manager and transaction interface. ScalarDB 3.0 adds support for MySQL and PostgreSQL in addition to the previously supported Apache Cassandra, Azure Cosmos DB, and Amazon DynamoDB. By supporting various databases, applications using ScalarDB achieve high portability.

ScalarDB is a general-purpose transaction manager and transaction interface, and software that enables ACID transactions by operating databases and storages that do not have ACID characteristics via ScalarDB. Until now, only distributed databases without a transaction mechanism were supported, but in version 3.0 released this time, we have added support for MySQL and PostgreSQL, which are relational databases.

By supporting various databases, applications using ScalarDB achieve high portability. For example, initially using MySQL for the database of a ScalarDB application, when the number of users and access to the application increases, the database can be migrated to Azure Cosmos DB or Amazon DynamoDB, which have high scalability. It can be done without rewriting.

In the future, we plan to develop a migration tool that supports database migration, etc., develop a transaction mechanism that spans multiple databases, and develop a general-purpose front end that supports GraphQL, etc. In addition, ScalarDL, another main product of our company, a database system with tampering detection capability, will be able to run on various databases by supporting ScalarDB 3.0.
