I am going to create shards in mysql table and I am stuck at a dileman whether to go for application layer sharding or let Mysql handle it. I mean, wether I should be figuring out which shard to go and query at application layer or pass on the query to Mysql driver and let it decide. I read about some pros and cons of both [enter link description here1 but I am unable to comeup with a conclusion.

My personal opinion is to go for Mysql driver handling it. Open for discussion on this. Please share your views/experiences ont he same.
