Percona/PlanetScale Present Introduction to Vitess on Kubernetes for MySQL

During this joint webinar our speakers, Alkin Tezuysal, Technical Expert at Percona and Sugu Sougoumarane, Co-Founder and CTO at PlanetScale will provide attendees with hands-on experience using Vitess using Kubernetes. They will start by providing a quick overview of Vitess - including key concepts and terminology, and then describe the deployment options for both in Kubernetes.

Moving from an unsharded system to a vertical split one (moving some tables to a different host)

Sharding large tables across several instances

Backups, Recoveries, and failovers (both planned and unplanned)

Attendees are not expected to have any prior experience with Vitess but will find it useful if they have prior experience completing these tasks in a MySQL environment and general know-how on Kubernetes operations.

The tutorial will be in three parts as follows:

History and background

Initial deployment and configurations




Vertical Split

Horizontal Split

Shard Management

Performance Considerations

Schema Changes
