The story so far…

It all started with René Cannaò’s initial release of ProxySQL, a GPLv3 licensed open source project in 2013. The biggest influence on the design of ProxySQL is its main goal and mantra:

Maximizing the Performance & Scalability of the Database

Shortly after the initial releases, the project’s popularity grew at a surprisingly fast rate as did the user success stories in the MySQL community.

As the number of project feature requests and reports continued to grow almost exponentially, it was clear that ProxySQL was achieving widespread adoption and being introduced into mission critical environments with demanding workloads. User demands for ProxySQL consulting services and official product support gave rise to ProxySQL LLC.

Over the years and owing to the community’s warm reception of our company we have steadily grown and extended activities to encompass product support, database reliability engineering, consulting, development and training to name a few. Our software and services serve numerous industries and are trusted by a countless organisations ranging from small startups to large scale corporations. This has all helped to make every release of ProxySQL better than the last.

Our efforts are focused on providing high performance products and tailored services to help our customers and community users increase their operational efficiency while driving down the total cost of ownership.
