PlanetScale offers the first database designed for developer workflows, on top of the technology of the hyperscalers.
PlanetScale is a MySQL compatible database that provides DevOps capabilities including database branching, merging and live migration. It takes away the headache of managing databases and offers app and product developers a powerful and predictable database without having to be DevOps experts. Our database platform is built on top of the Open Source Vitess project, that powers companies like YouTube, GitHub, and Square and enables them to scale infinitely while applying the same velocity to features requiring database changes, as to those that don’t. Database branching and merging allows thousands of our customers to use the same DevOps workflows for their databases as for their code changes. PlanetScale accelerates companies’ success by being both the best choice for developers on day one when creating their company, and the most scalable choice when they hit hyperscale.
