Facebook has taken MySQL scaling to extremes well beyond what Vitess offers.

Not sure if that's a good thing.

And to understand scaling and extremes: FB basically uses RocksDB and/or MySQL as a low level storage layer for whatever thing they want to. (And on top they build the clustering stuff, with the particular CAP choices they think is best for that particular service/purpose.)
