Sugu Sougoumarane (PlanetScale), Dan Kozlowski (PlanetScale) deliver the talk, "Vitess: Running Sharded MySQL on Kubernetes", on DAY 1 of the Percona Live Open Source Database Conference 2019, 5/29, at Austin, TX.
Vitess has continued to evolve into a massively scalable sharded solution for the cloud. It's is now used for storing core business data for companies like Slack, Square, JD.com, and many others.
This session will cover the high-level features of Vitess with a focus on what makes it cloud-native.
We'll conclude with a demo of the powerful materialized views feature that most sharded systems have yet to solve.
