Vitess is a cloud-native storage solution that can scale indefinitely. In this session, we will first cover a high level overview of Vitess features, the architecture, and what database workloads are a good fit. Then we will demonstrate how to get started with Vitess on Kubernetes. This will be followed by VTAdmin, the next generation of tooling and UIs for managing large-scale, multi-cluster Vitess deployments, built for developers and operators alike. We will demo resharding using VTAdmin, and will talk about improvements to performance and scalability along the way.
