MySQL Router is part of InnoDB cluster, and is lightweight middleware that provides transparent routing between your application and back-end MySQL Servers. It can be used for a wide variety of use cases, such as providing high availability and scalability by effectively routing database traffic to appropriate back-end MySQL Servers. The pluggable architecture also enables developers to extend MySQL Router for custom use cases. For additional details about how MySQL Router is part of InnoDB cluster, see InnoDB Cluster.
