Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"Load balancing is valuable, and we are also using the WAF feature.""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.""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 most valuable feature is the load-balancing reverse proxy.""It is easy to expand. Our clients are enterprise-size.""The interface is easy, it's friendly, and has good alerting."

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."

More HAProxy Cons »

"Load balancing needs improvement. It needs better integration. I heard f5 works as a DNS operator which is not available in this solution. It would be better if that was implemented.""Support is an area that needs improvement.""We are having a difficult time with the security module, and how to implement the Radware security."

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