On behalf of the Vitess maintainers, I am pleased to announce the general availability of Vitess 11. Major Themes # In this release, Vitess Maintainers have made significant progress in several areas, including Benchmarking, VTAdmin, Schema Tracking, Online DDL, and Performance improvements. While Schema Tracking is experimental, we’re very excited to have Gen4 planner evolving as well. Please take a moment to review the Release Notes. Please read them carefully and report any issues via GitHub.
On behalf of the Vitess maintainers, I am pleased to announce the general availability of Vitess 10. Major Themes # In this release, Vitess Maintainers have continued to focus on compatibility. It is still the most critical component of Vitess being part of the MySQL ecosystem. We have also started working on benchmarking and performance optimizations. These improvements have given us a clear vision of which areas of Vitess can be improved in terms of performance.
On behalf of the Vitess maintainers team, I am pleased to announce the general availability of Vitess 9. Major Themes # In this release, we have focused on making Vitess more stable after the successful release of Version 8. There have been no major issues reported. So there were no patches released for Version 8. This has allowed us to push further on compatibility and adoption of common frameworks as priorities.
Django is a popular framework for Python application developers. It includes packages which make tasks like authorization and content administration easier. Django supports a number of databases including MySQL which makes it possible to run a Django application over Vitess without having to change the application code. Let’s take a look at how to combine the strengths of these two open source frameworks. We built this example using Vitess operator. You can see the details of the implementation in the blog post Vitess Operator for Kubernetes.
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.
