Proxies and supporting an exploding number of user-accounts

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.
