We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The most valuable thing for me is TCP/IP Layer 4 stuff you can do with HAProxy. You can go down to the protocol level and make decisions on something.""The feature that I have found the most valuable is that it works for my use case of application load balancing. I'm using it for PeerSense, and it's easy enough for PeerSense.""Load balancing is valuable, and we are also using the WAF feature."

More HAProxy Pros »

"For now, it's stable.""It helps us to route the traffic to the available servers. If we didn't have Loadbalancer we would fail to set the end-user and it would cause a failure in the cluster."

More Loadbalancer.org Pros »

Cons
"Sometimes it's challenging to get through the log, and you need a log to understand what is going on. It isn't easy to map the logging with the documentation, and every time I read the log, I have to pull out the documentation to understand what I'm reading.""Pricing, monitoring, and reports can be improved.""There is no standardized document available. So, any individual has to work from scratch to work it out. If some standard deployment details are available, it would be helpful for people while deploying it. There should be more documentation on the standard deployment."

"There are many features you can set in the backend of Loadbalancer. They should simplify the configuration. The administrator should be able to configure it more simply. How it is now, you can only configure it if you have a lot of experience.""It doesn't have the bonding capability feature."

More Loadbalancer.org Cons »

Pricing and Cost Advice
"HAProxy is free in the initial offer. However, pricing can be improved.""It is free of cost."
