Future-Proof your move to Kubernetes

We built Vitess at Google to run YouTube’s databases, ranging from single instance to massive multi-shard, multi-cell clusters on Borg, the blueprint for Kubernetes. As Hubspot and have proven, Vitess makes running your databases in Kubernetes easy.

Liberate your data from monolithic databases

Support the smallest databases to the largest with shard, the unit of database within Vitess where we co-locate related data. As your data grows, scale up by splitting your database into more and more shards. Grow indefinitely without degrading performance.

Build a bridge from self hosted to multi-cloud

PlanetScale provides a platform that can host your data on-prem and then seamlessly migrate it to the cloud provider of your choice or a multi-cloud cluster if you prefer.
