Turbocharged MySQL For The Cloud

PlanetScale helps you build highly scalable modern applications on top of MySQL without any of the guesswork.

Powered By Vitess

At the heart of PlanetScale lies Vitess: the open-source MySQL sharding solution we co-created that helps you scale horizontally like NoSQL with the reliability of SQL.

Features

  • Icon to visually describe the Vitess & PlanetScale feature of Scale Massively

    Scale Massively

    Vitess combines many important MySQL features with the scalability of a NoSQL database. Its built-in sharding features let you grow your database without adding sharding logic to your application.
  • Icon to visually describe the Vitess & PlanetScale feature of Improve Performance

    Improve Performance

    Vitess automatically rewrites queries that hurt database performance. It also uses caching mechanisms to mediate queries and prevent duplicate queries from simultaneously reaching your database.
  • Icon to visually describe the Vitess & PlanetScale feature of Auto Failover and Backups

    Auto Failover and Backups

    Vitess integrates with Orchestrator to provide failure detection and automated recovery. Backups are automatically performed on a replica, with Vitess keeping track of any topology changes.
  • Icon to visually describe the Vitess & PlanetScale feature of Manage Shards

    Manage Shards

    MySQL doesn’t natively support sharding, but you will likely need it as your database grows. Vitess saves you from having to add sharding logic to your app and also enables live resharding with minimal read-only downtime.
  • Icon to visually describe the Vitess & PlanetScale feature of Gain Connection Pooling

    Gain Connection Pooling

    By multiplexing application queries onto a pool of MySQL connections, Vitess optimizes performance by eliminating the high-memory overhead of MySQL connections.
  • Icon to visually describe the Vitess & PlanetScale feature of Cluster Workflows

    Cluster Workflows

    Vitess keeps track of all of the metadata about your cluster configuration so that the cluster view is always up-to-date and consistent for different clients.
