The Proxy Wars - MySQL Router, ProxySQL, MariaDB MaxScale
Join Percona’s Chief Evangelist, Colin Charles as he presents “The Proxy Wars - MySQL Router, ProxySQL, MariaDB MaxScale” on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 at 7:00 am PST / 10:00 am EST (UTC-8).
As proxies (and database routers) go, the first one I ever used was the now deprecated MySQL Proxy. Since then, I've managed to use MariaDB MaxScale quite a bit (including its fork AirBnB MaxScale), played around with ProxySQL in recent time, and also started taking a look at MySQL Router. In this quick 20-minute overview, we'll discuss why these three exist, a feature comparison, and reasons when to use the right tool for the job.
