ScyllaDB Version Upgrade

Can I upgrade from ScyllaDB Version X to version Y?

If you’re using ScyllaDB Cloud, you don’t have to upgrade, as it’s a fully managed service. It deploys the latest ScyllaDB Enterprise version, and all upgrades are performed by ScyllaDB.

If you’re using ScyllaDB Open Source or Enterprise, you can upgrade to a newer version following these upgrade guides:

A ScyllaDB upgrade is a rolling procedure - it does not require full cluster shutdown and is performed without any downtime or disruption of service.

To ensure a successful upgrade and avoid breaking anything, you should perform your upgrades consecutively - to each successive version. For example, to upgrade from version 4.4 to 5.0, you should first upgrade ScyllaDB to version 4.5, next from 4.5 to 4.6, and finally, from 4.6 to 5.0, without skipping any major version.
