Unbounded scale: using Vitess for scaling write intensive workloads by Morgan Tocker, Daniel Guzman Burgos
Scaling very large MySQL applications is the ultimate challenge, and there's no native solution for it. Since vertical scaling is not sustainable in time, horizontal scaling is the smartest move. Sharding issues within MySQL are not trivial but also not imposible. We will discuss thoses issues and how Vitess handle those to guarantee a successful scaling process. Topics covered:
  • Introduction to Vitess
  • History and background
  • Initial deployment and configurations
  • Management
  • Scalability
  • Operational tasks with Vitess
  • Performance Considerations
  • Schema Changes
