HAProxy Review

Improves our scalability and responsiveness services

What is our primary use case?

It serves as a fast front-end solution to our services.

Also, it uses the mobile detection module that I developed and maintain.

How has it helped my organization?

It improves our scalability and responsiveness services to meet our demanding customer requirements. We now have much better metrics regarding clients types.

What is most valuable?

  • The Lua module to reach an increasing user base.
  • HTTP/2 support
  • Multi-thread support

What needs improvement?

Maybe HAProxy could be more modular. 

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What other advice do I have?

The SSL termination was a nice, useful addition.
