We built Vitess at Google to scale, manage and monitor YouTube’s MySQL databases on Borg, the blueprint for Kubernetes. Today, Vitess is an Apache 2 Licensed open source project owned by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, and uses MySQL as the underlying data store which is the most popular open source database. It is trusted by companies like Square, Slack and Github to run mission-critical workloads at massive scale. Vitess has enabled HubSpot and JD.com to run their workloads on Kubernetes.
At PlanetScale, we have built a fully hosted database-as-a-service that allows businesses to deploy new databases around the globe with just a few clicks and manages them with production grade workflows via an intuitive user interface. We take care of backups, restores, applying schema changes, applying software patches, master failovers, while providing world class durability and availability guarantees. We call this PlanetScaleDB.
We built PlanetScaleDB on Kubernetes using the operator design pattern and created a standard Kubernetes API that makes it easy to deploy and manage the master and replicas for a single database in multiple cloud providers.
You know what it means to deliver world class services. Getting a system online isn’t enough for you, you’re not happy until it’s bullet proof. You make solid technical decisions and can explain to others why you made them. You dream of building high availability distributed services that delight users.
PlanetScale’s goal is to provide the best database for any online system. Building off Vitess you will be making a system that allows developers to manage their databases like they manage the rest of their application stack. Provisioning, scaling and managing the database should be simple and reliable. Your job is to make sure our platform is capable of meeting those and many more demands, especially as we support multiple clouds, and allow users to run our own database as a service in their data centers. .
