Conquering Load Balancing: Experiences from ScyllaDB Drivers

Load balancing seems simple on the surface, with algorithms like round-robin, but the real world loves throwing curveballs. Join me in this session as we delve into the intricacies of load balancing within ScyllaDB Drivers. Discover firsthand experiences from our journey in driver development, where we employed the Power of Two Choices algorithm, optimized the implementation of load balancing in Rust Driver, mitigated cloud costs through zone-aware load balancing and combated the issue of overloading a particular core of ScyllaDB. Be prepared to delve into the practical and theoretical aspects of load balancing, gaining valuable insights along the way.
