I’m new to ScyllaDB and trying to understand how data is stored at the storage level. I’m exploring the use of ScyllaDB for OLAP workloads, where analytical tasks could benefit from a columnar storage structure, storing entire columns contiguously in memory. As ScyllaDB is a wide column store, I’m wondering if it stores column family data together on disk. Can someone clarify and guide me to relevant documentation? Any help is much appreciated. Thank you
ScyllaDB does not have a columnar data format. Data is storage is partition and row oriented.
See sstables-directory-structure.md for more information about our on-disk format.
