Introduction # In this blog, I would like to explore Vitess Operator for Kubernetes. This post demonstrates the sample implementation of Vitess in Kubernetes topology. I also explore common DBA tasks by demonstrating how they are handled in the Vitess ecosystem. Vitess, out of the box, comes with a lot of tools and utilities that one has to either incorporate or develop to manage MySQL topology. Let’s take a look at the capabilities of Vitess in these areas and demonstrate how they are performed under the operator realm.
