HAProxy Review

We were able to centralize connections with multiple carriers in a HA environment

What is our primary use case?

In my previous company, we had a lot of connections with carriers and we had this communication centralized with HAProxy. We had a high-availavility environment with HAProxy, and Keepalived too for database connections.

How has it helped my organization?

We were able to use HAProxy for round robin with our databases, or for a centralized TCP connection in one host.

What is most valuable?

Round robin and monitoring.

What needs improvement?

From my point of view, the configuration should be more friendly, perhaps with a Web interface. For example, I work with the ClusterControl product for Severalnines, and we have a Web interface to deploy the HAProxy load-balancer.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.
