Proxies are building blocks of HA setups for MySQL & MariaDB. 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.
