Running Scylla using Docker

To make queries we will need a running Scylla instance. The easiest way is to use a Docker image.Please install Docker if it’s not installed.

Running scylla

To start Scylla run:

# on Linux sudo might be required
docker run --rm -it -p 9042:9042 scylladb/scylla --smp 2

Docker will download the image, then after minute or two there should be a message like:

Starting listening for CQL clients on 172.17.0.2:9042

This means that Scylla is ready to receive queries

To stop this instance press Ctrl + C
