Vyshata was born 1020 to Ostromir Konstantinovich (c995-1057) and died 1065 of unspecified causes.

Vyshata was a Novgorodian general and voivode, whose father is supposed to have been posadnik Ostromir Konstantinovich and whose son was Yan Vyshatich. Vyshata was an associate of Vladimir Yaroslavich while the last ruled in Novgorod.

The authors of the Primary Chronicle made use of Yan's tales, tending to emphasise Vyshata's leadership in the Russo-Byzantine war of 1043 at the expense of Ivan Tvorimirovich, who was most likely the commander-in-chief. After his defeat near Constantinople, Vyshata was taken prisoner and spent three years in confinement in Byzantium.

Vyshata is mentioned as the right-hand man to Sadko, in Onega-Novgorod Bylinas.

He is known to have had another son by the name of Putyata.
