New Question: MaxScale without a Single Point of Failure?



A new question has been asked in "MaxScale Getting Started" by iomdesign. Please answer it at http://mariadb.com/kb/en/maxscale-without-a-single-point-of-failure/ as the person asking the question may not be subscribed to the mailing list.


We are looking at potentially using MaxScale as a solution to load balance our MySQL connections and provide read/write splits in a master slave setup. If we have both web servers pointing to a single proxy then obviously we have a single point of failure. When we were originally looking at HAProxy it was suggested having a local proxy for each web server that could then balance out across the databases. Is it possible to run MaxScale in a similar fashion? Is there a better approach that could be suggested with MaxScale without a single point of failure?
