Proxies are building blocks of high availability setups for MySQL. They can detect failed nodes and route queries to hosts which are still available. If your master failed and you had to promote one of your slaves, proxies will detect such topology changes and route your traffic accordingly. More advanced proxies can do much more: route traffic based on precise query rules, cache queries or mirror them. They can be even used to implement different types of sharding.
In this webinar, we are happy to be joined by ProxySQL’s creator, René Cannaò, to tell us more about this new proxy and its features. We will show you how you can deploy ProxySQL using ClusterControl. And we will give you an early walk-through of some of the exciting ClusterControl features for ProxySQL that we have planned for its next release.
