MaxScale - We'd Love to Know Your Thoughts

As you've heard, MaxScale was recently released, and we'd love for you to try it out and let us know your thoughts.

Anders Karlsson and Ivan Zoratti have written some excellent posts on downloading and setting it up, so if you're intersted in that, please see their respective posts for quick, detailed instructions.

I just wanted to take a moment and encourage you to try it out if you're looking for load balancing out of the box, and if you do, we'd love to get your feedback.

If you have any feature requests you'd like to see, or run into any bugs while testing, please report them here:

http://bugs.skysql.com

Or, if you want, feel free to leave any comments here. :)

Lastly, if you're interested in MaxScale (and/or MariaDB Enterprise), please don't forget to attend Ivan's webinar this Thursday, 2/6/2014, at noon EST (9am PST):

We look forward to hearing from you. :)
