HAProxy Review

Reliability and transparency are the most valuable features

What is most valuable?

Reliability and transparency are the most valuable features.

How has it helped my organization?

This product is replacing another balancer which was not supported anymore. So, there is no major improvement for us.

In general, the improvement is in terms of the balancer sense which is moving from a single web server/single point of failure to using several back-end servers, that greatly improves the speed and reliable uptime.

What needs improvement?

I would improve the web-based UI, but it’s a matter of personal preference.

There were no stability issues, it’s a stable product.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

There were no scalability issues.

How is customer service and technical support?

The technical support is very good , they are quick and responsive, which is essential for any product to succeed in this market.

Which solutions did we use previously?

Previously, we were using another product but it is no longer supported.

How was the initial setup?

For the most part, the setup is pretty straightforward. However, as I mentioned earlier, thanks to the very good and quick technical support, all the complex requirements that we had were resolved quickly.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is good compared to the other similar products.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated at least four to five other products.

What other advice do I have?
