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.
