Vitess: Another interesting MySQL/NoSQL approach

Last week I was part of a discussion panel on SQL versus NoSQL. Many in the audience seemed to believe that you needed to be one or the other with an exclusive or. Then today I learned about Vitess, an idea to use MySQL as a data layer while providing easy scaling and control the roll out of a logical schema. Is there room for an inclusive or.

Some traditional SQL rules are relaxed in conjunction with pools of sessionless connections. I hope Vitess does well and maybe this hybrid approach makes some of our current SQL/NoSQL arguments moot.
