Consistent Lookup Vindex: Achieving Data Consistency without 2PC

Vindex # Vitess uses Vindexes (short for Vitess Index) to associate rows in a table with a designated address known as Keyspace ID. This allows Vitess to direct a row to its intended destination, typically a shard within the cluster. Vindexes play a dual role: enabling data sharding through Primary Vindexes and facilitating global indexing via Secondary Vindexes. Through this mechanism, Vindexes serve as an indispensable tool for routing queries in a sharded database, ensuring optimal performance and scalability.

Vitess seemed like an good place to start, so I started contributing, mostly on internal cleanup.

Serverless databases are a modern approach to database technology. Unlike traditional databases, where users have to manage server infrastructure and capacity planning, serverless databases remove those complexities. Users can focus solely on their data and applications, leaving the database infrastructure provisioning, scaling, and maintenance to the service provider.
