Vitess is a database clustering system for horizontal scaling of MySQL through sharding. By enabling shard-routing logic, Vitess allows application code and database queries to remain agnostic to the distribution of data onto multiple shards. With Vitess, you can split, merge, and migrate shards as your needs grow. With its compatibility to development frameworks and integration to open-source tools, Vitess has been a core component of several high traffic OLTP sites around the world and serving data across different platforms. Vitess is also the first Linux Foundation/Cloud Native Computing Foundation graduated open-source database project.
