Setting up ProxySQL 1.4 with MySQL 5.7 Group Replication

January 9, 2018

There are 3 pillars for a database architecture: Monitoring, Backup / Restore process, High Availability
This blog post is about database High Availability; more precisely about one of the best combo of the moment :
MySQL 5.7 Group Replication : the only native HA solution for MySQL, it’s a Single/Multi-master update everywhere replication plugin for MySQL with built-in automatic distributed recovery, conflict detection and group membership.
ProxySQL 1.4 : probably the best proxy for MySQL.
