High Availability in ProxySQL

Presented by René Cannaò and Krzysztof Ksiazek

As requested during our recent introduction webinar to ProxySQL, we’re pleased to invite you to join this new webinar on high availability in ProxySQL.

The proxy layer is crucial when building a highly available MySQL infrastructure; it is therefore imperative to not let it become a single point of failure on its own. And building a highly available proxy layer creates additional challenges, such as how to manage multiple proxy instances,  how to ensure that their configuration is in sync, Virtual IP and fail-over.

In this joint webinar with ProxySQL’s creator, René Cannaò, you will learn about building a solid, scalable and manageable proxy layer using ProxySQL. And we will show you how you can make your ProxySQL highly available when deploying it from ClusterControl.
