In our last post, we introduced Vitess (an open-source project that powers YouTube's main database) as a way of turning MySQL into a scalable Kubernetes application.

  • Add more replicas for better read throughput and data durability
  • Introduce sharding to scale your write throughput and let your data set grow beyond a single machine
  • Create separate replica pools for batch jobs and backups, to isolate them from live traffic
  • Clone the whole deployment into multiple datacenters worldwide for disaster recovery and lower latency
