Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"It solves a problem for me where I can build files, not based on the health of the check, but rather the speed of the check.""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."

More HAProxy Pros »

"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."

Cons
"The logging functionality could use improvement, as it is a little cryptic.""Pricing, monitoring, and reports can be improved."

More HAProxy Cons »

"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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The only cost is for the image manager, who is responsible for uploading the image, and that is trivial.""HAProxy is free in the initial offer. However, pricing can be improved."
