PostgREST vs ProxySQL: What are the differences?

Developers describe PostgREST as "Automatic REST API for Any Postgres Database". PostgREST serves a fully RESTful API from any existing PostgreSQL database. It provides a cleaner, more standards-compliant, faster API than you are likely to write from scratch. On the other hand, ProxySQL is detailed as "A High-performance, GPL licensed MySQL proxy". It has an advanced multi-core architecture. It's built from the ground up to support hundreds of thousands of concurrent connections, multiplexed to potentially hundreds of backend servers. It helps you squeeze the last drop of performance out of your MySQL cluster, without controlling the applications that generate the queries.

PostgREST and ProxySQL belong to "Database Tools" category of the tech stack.
