HAProxy Review

The seamless reload feature was much needed and very helpful


What is our primary use case?

HAProxy is used both as an external (customer facing) and internal (between service APIs) solution. We use it for SSL offload, domain and path based ACLs, request header manipulations, and much more.

How has it helped my organization?

Layer 7 health checks improved stability. Logs and metrics are very rich and easy to export which makes it easier for us to pinpoint once something is not working as we expect.

What is most valuable?

With each new release, I find very useful features and love each addition. Recently, the seamless reload feature was much needed and very helpful.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see a two (or more) native cluster support without third parties or DNS manipulations.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.
