ProxySQL is a very powerful platform that allows us to manipulate and manage our connections and queries in a simple but effective way. Historically MySQL lacks in sharding capability. This significant missing part had often cause developer do implement sharding at application level, or DBA/SA to move on to another solution. ProxySQL comes with an elegant and simple solution that allow us to implement sharding capability with MySQL without the need to perform significant, or at all, changes in the code. This brief presentation will illustrate how to successfully configure and use ProxySQL to perform sharding, from very simple approach based on connection user/ip/port, to complicate ones that see the need to read values inside queries.
