Want to horizontally scale your database without all the effort? Check out our latest resharding workflow that allows you to scale from 1 shard to 128 with a few clicks of a button.
The more loosely coupled components are in a distributed system, the better it scale
We look at some basics and follow up to present scenarios that require higher level intervention to ensure availability and to avoid split brains from taking place.
Consensus Use Cases
how the new integration adds new failure detection and recovery scenarios, making orchestrator’s operation goal-oriented.

Why I joined PlanetScale to work on Vitess and PlanetScaleDB, and what I perceive Vitess can become in the MySQL open source ecosystem.
This is a multi-part blog series and will be updated with links to the corresponding posts.
Rate Puppies in a Rust app with Sharded MySQL Database
Software engineer Abhi Vaidyanatha walks us through a live deployment of a true multi-cloud Vitess cluster on PlanetScaleDB
Pair a rapid app deployment solution with a scalable SQL database, allowing you to iterate quickly with the knowledge that your storage will grow with your data.
On behalf of the Vitess maintainers team, I am pleased to announce the general availability of Vitess 7. Major Themes Improved SQL Support We continued to progress towards (almost) full MySQL compatibility.
Here at PlanetScale we hear some concerns about the reliability of Vitess and its capabilities with regards to data loss.
I am excited to announce the general availability of Vitess 6, the second release to follow our new accelerated release schedule.
Build systems that do not lose data. Vitess prevents asynchronous failure in two ways: (1) ensuring that the changes are saved locally on storage, with the redo log and binary logs safely written to disk and (2) making use of semi-synchronous replication.
This video playlist featuring Vitess co-creator, Sugu Sougoumarane, is an excellent resource to learn more about the features and capabilities of open source Vitess.
With the recent release of our new multi-cloud offering, the PlanetScale engineering team achieved a feat that has never been done before: enabling a database-as-a-service to replicate across the three major cloud providers. Learn how we did it.
True multi-cloud, multi-region clusters for PlanetScaleDB now available in beta release on AWS, GCP, and Azure.
We’ve made it easy to set up a multi-region or multi-cloud database. While our multi-cloud and multi-region databases on PlanetScaleDB are in beta and should not be used for production workloads, you can get started right away by creating an account.
It's easier than ever to contribute to Vitess. The test suite migration from Python to golang makes Vitess more developer friendly.
