Scylla Python Driver¶
The Scylla Python driver is shard aware and contains extensions for a tokenAwareHostPolicy supported by Scylla 2.3 and onwards. Using this policy, the driver can select a connection to a particular shard based on the shard’s token. As a result, latency is significantly reduced because there is no need to pass data between the shards.
As the Scylla Python Driver is a drop-in replacement for DataStax Python Driver, no code changes are needed to use the driver. Use the Scylla Python driver for better compatibility and support for Scylla with Python-based applications.
The Scylla Python driver supports Python versions 3.21.0 and 3.22.0
