Cloud Native Capabilities in TiDB

TiDB is designed to work in cloud, on-premises, or hybrid environments. It is cloud native in that it takes full advantage of the scalability and elasticity of the cloud. Running a distributed SQL environment provides many advantages with added resiliency and the ability to scale up, down, in, or out as needed to meet your business requirements.

By distributing compute and storage resources, you gain a level of resiliency that can go beyond the standards of high availability. Combining this with our available Kubernetes Operator enables you to create, run, and maintain an environment that is appropriately sized, self-healing, and highly available.

Cloud native capabilities in TiDB include

  • Scale as needed to meet changing business needs, with costs always kept in check
  • With Kubernetes, the ability to ensure consistent and idempotent environments for development and deployment
  • Kubernetes also provides for a new node to be instantiated as needed, whether to accommodate growth or to replace a lost node

TiDB works within your environment to provide you with the surety that your data is both safely stored and continuously available.
