Vitess Roadmap

Upcoming features planned for development

As an open source project, Vitess is developed by a community of contributors. Many of the contributors run Vitess in production, and add features to address their specific pain points. As a result of this, we can not guarantee features listed here will be implemented in any specific order.

If you have a specific question about the Roadmap, we recommend posting in our Slack channel, click the Slack icon in the top right to join. This is a very active community forum and a great place to interact with other users.

Short Term

  • VReplication
    • Improve the resharding workflow (flexibility, speed and reliability)
    • Materialized Views
    • VStream (unified stream of events across shards and sharding events)
  • Support for Point in Time Recovery
  • Remove python dependency when running the testsuite (tests should be pure Go).
  • Reduce the time required to execute the test suite (evaluate alternatives to Travis CI if it makes sense to switch.)
  • Adopt a consistent release cycle for new GAs of Vitess
  • Improve Documentation
  • Improve Usability

Medium Term

  • VReplication
    • Support for Schema Changes
    • Backfill lookup indexes
    • Support for Data Migration
  • Topology Service: Reduce dependencies on the topology service. i.e. Vitess should be operable normally even if topology service is down for several hours. Topology service should be used only for passive discovery.
  • Support for PostgreSQL: Vitess should be able to support PostgreSQL for both storing data, and speaking the protocol in VTGate.
