PlanetScale – the database for developers

PlanetScale - the database for developers

We just released our new PlanetScale database platform and would love your feedback.

Our team has been frustrated with the state of databases for years so we set out to create a database platform that:

  • Is easy to manage and integrates seamlessly in your day to day workflow
  • Can scale with you from idea to IPO

On the workflow side we've built live database branching, that lets you quickly get copies of your production db, and non-blocking schema changes, that let you push changes to your database like you push code updates.

This is all built on top of Vitess, which means you also don't have to worry about vacuuming, rebalancing, scaling, query planning, or downtime. Vitess is currently powering companies like YouTube, Github, and Slack, so you get the power of hyperscalers with any easy to use database platform.

Try it out and let us know what you think. We have a Developer focused plan that is free for forever and that you can get spun up in under 5 minutes.\_campaign=Beta%20Release&utm\_source=web&utm\_medium=reddit
