Wait – What is Vitess?

Get a brief overview of the concept and basics of Vitess.

Unbreakable and Scalable to New Heights

Browse through the features of our Managed Database solution built with Vitess and find out the details that allow you to rely on the integrity of your data and flexibility of your solid base for flourishing applications.

Database in Minutes

When building and running applications, you need flexibility. Rely on a flexible database that is ready within minutes. Just a few clicks in our NWS web interface and you have a stable, secure, and scalable database as a service. No setup, no maintenance, no pain. We take care! Buying a ticket for public transport is more complicated. Start using your DB right away!

High Availability

We replicate your data and distribute it at least twice across two sites in our ISO-certified data centers. With Vitess we have disenchanted the witchcraft and automated our replication setup to the maximum. Leave the database management work and time-consuming tuning to us. Rely on a highly available architecture. Primary DB and replicas with failover and self-healing mechanisms are in place.

Disaster Recovery

Anyone who has experienced data loss knows how painful it is. How much work and hassle is involved, when valuable data is suddenly gone. Daily free Disaster Recovery (DR) Backups are included with our Managed Database. All our DB clusters come with this one backup out of the box. We can even increase the number of backups if you want us to. Relax and recover from worries!

MySQL Compatible

Our Managed Database built with Vitess is just right for your MySQL compatible applications. We store your data on MySQL servers and use Vitess to access it. Almost all applications are compatible with our Managed Database. We like to talk in structured language.

Multiple Replicas

Each of our Managed Databases comes with a high availability setup by default. In case your app produces more read-intensive workload, simply increase your replica count! The trick: your app still accesses one address and Vitess does the magic to lead and accelerate the queries. We have different modes of synchronicity available. Just add the right replicas for your best possible performance.

Partitioning & Sharding

As traffic grows to your site your database might end up being overloaded with too many requests. This is where partitioning and sharding help you out by breaking your big single logical database into multiple small databases. Distribute the load even more and scale by just adding more nodes to split up your tables. Partitioning and sharding with Vitess bring basically unlimited scalability for your DB.


If slow response times of your application become persistent, the cause is often the high load on the database. With our Insights you have an overview of the performance metrics of your database. Easy to understand diagrams visualize the load. Zoom in or out by defining a time span. For an even better understanding of usage and utilization and more accurate resource planning.

Non-Blocking Architecture

Schema migrations on production are no longer frightening! With traditional databases, depending on your operation and your data, there might be some blocked tables for a period of time. This can range from minutes to hours. With Vitess, this issue is solved! Your database is always available. Even rollbacks of the migration can be executed, if necessary.
