Abstract

Are you dealing with the challenges of rapid growth? Are you thinking about how to scale your database layer? Should you use NoSQL? Should you shard your relational database? If you are facing these kinds of problems, this session is for you. Vitess is a database solution for deploying, scaling and managing large clusters of MySQL instances. It's architected to run as effectively in a public or private cloud architecture as it does on dedicated hardware. It combines and extends many important MySQL features with the scalability of a NoSQL database. This session gives an overview of the salient features of Vitess, and at the end, we'll cover some advanced features with a demo.
