Currently Principal Developer at Booking.com and chairman of the board of directors of the MariaDB Foundation. Formerly a developer at MySQL. Always a Free Software/Open Hardware hacker and do-it-from-scratch-er exploring a strange and wondrous universe.
As our MySQL/MariaDB/Percona Server deployments get larger and more complex, they will certainly contain more use of proxies and likely an ever-growing number of users. This talk will discuss some of the the challenges and implications which are already known, including performance implications and connection parameters. A brief overview will be given of a pull request which addresses the most obvious performance concern.
