Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
The only cost is for the image manager, who is responsible for uploading the image, and that is trivial.I think that the pricing is very fair, I would definitely recommend buying the Enterprise license.We use NGINX as well. However, because the health checks are a paid feature, I like to avoid it whenever possible‚Äč.If you don't have expertise then go with the licensed version. Otherwise, open-source is the best solution.Very good value for the money. One of the simplest licensing schemes in this category of products.Test/lab virtual machines can be installed without a licence. They can't be used for performance testing but otherwise behave like production nodes.The price is well worth it. HAProxy Enterprise Edition paid for itself within months, simply due to the resiliency it brings. It was a bit more expensive than we were originally interested in paying, but we are thankful we chose to go with HAProxy.
