This post is just following up my previous blog post which describes how to setup 3-nodes MariaDB Galera Cluster with MySQL-Sandbox on single server.
Today, I’ll try to explain how we can setup MariaDB MaxScale over the Galera Cluster. Before I move ahead, I would like to explain about MaxScale little bit.
MariaDB MaxScale is a database proxy that enables horizontal database scaling while maintaining a fast response to client applications. You can implement MaxScale on either MySQL Replication or Galera cluster. With MySQL Replication, you can either use Read/Write Splitting or Connection routing and same with Galera Cluster. You can get more information here about this product.
