Kubernetes, The Swiss Army Knife For Your ProxySQL Deployments – Percona Live ONLINE Talk Preview

 | May 8, 2020 |  Posted In: Events, Kubernetes, Tools

Percona Live Online Agenda Slot: Tue 19 May • New York 10:00 p.m. • London 3:00 a.m. (Wed) • New Delhi 7:30 a.m. (Wed)


ProxySQL is a high performance proxy from design to implementation. It speaks the MySQL protocol, and can go beyond load balancing. This talk covers various deployment options for ProxySQL in a Kubernetes environment.

Typically ProxySQL is deployed in one of three ways depending on the scale and needs of your environment:

– Directly on each application server
– On a separate server (or layer)
– Cascaded, i.e. on each application server as well as a separate server (or layer)

This talk will cover how to successfully implement each of these ProxySQL deployment methods in Kubernetes using a highly scalable and robust approach.

Why is your talk exciting?

This was originally meant to be a tutorial, but it is now a talk, so it is not 3 hours cut into one, but tailored to whet your appetites for what is possible with ProxySQL on Kubernetes, which is an important topic in the community. I will share practical examples of deployment methods that have been implemented successfully in collaboration with large scale users.

Who would benefit the most from your talk?

You should have an intermediate understanding of MySQL and how replication and proxying would work as well as at least a basic understanding of Kubernetes.

What other presentations are you most looking forward to?

All the talks on the Percona Live agenda are exciting, but if I had to pick one talk, it would be “Mostly Mistaken and Ignored Parameters While Optimizing a PostgreSQL Database” by Avi Vallarapu.
