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
