DBaaS for Mission Critical Applications Debuts at KubeCon 2019
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 31, 2020 – PlanetScale, co-founded by CEO Jitendra Vaidya and CTO Sugu Sougoumarane – former YouTube engineers – today announced the general availability of PlanetScale CNDb, a fully managed cloud native database designed on Vitess, a Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) hosted open source project that serves massive scale production traffic at large web-scale companies like YouTube, Slack, and Square.
First created in 2010 as an internal solution at YouTube for scaling large amounts of storage using MySQL, the most popular open source database in the world, Vitess is a cloud native database system that delivers unmatched scale and flexibility. Vitess helps users migrate their stateful workloads to Kubernetes, scaling storage horizontally while presenting a MySQL compatible interface to applications - making it easy for application developers to adopt with minimal code changes.
“The PlanetScale team invented Vitess and now we have built a fully managed cloud native database, PlanetScale CNDb, that will always be the most trusted and complete service based on Vitess,” said PlanetScale CEO Jitendra Vaidya.
By 2022, 75 percent of all databases will be deployed or migrated to a cloud platform, according to Gartner. PlanetScale believes that infrastructure deployments of the future will be multi-cloud and will have built in support for disaster recovery and data locality. PlanetScale’s database-as-a-service enables this multi-vendor, Kubernetes powered, future in the cloud.
PlanetScale CNDb is built on two trusted technologies: Vitess and MySQL, which powers millions of applications. Among the key benefits of PlanetScale CNDb:
PlanetScale will be debuting CNDb at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2019 on November 18-21 in San Diego. To learn more, visit the PlanetScale booth SE39 and join one of our presentations during the KubeCon program.
