Most people use standalone MySQL servers to perform queries on. Advanced users sometimes use loadbalancing and replication, but that still leaves you with the management and provisioning of the individual nodes. Using MySQL Proxy (and Memcached) you can create a MySQL farm that is fast, easy to maintain from a single provisioning database and accessible via a single point of entry.
