HAProxy Previous Solutions

Jared Bates
DevOps Engineer at a media company with 501-1,000 employees
We previously used Coyote Point load balancers, and then switched to Fortinet’s Application Delivery Controller, due to end-of-life on the Coyote Points. After a few months of major issues involving hours of downtime and slowness, we had to make a decision to move away from Fortinet. We chose HAProxy because of the open-source community behind it, and previous experience with it. We then decided to upgrade to the Enterprise Edition for the support they offer. View full review »

Yes. As a non-profit charitable organisation, Carers ACT aims to reduce costs where possible to enable finances to be redirected to services for clients as far as possible. A reduction in overhead allows for an increase in value for our clients. Carers ACT was facing a significant renewal cost for our existing load balancer solution, and approached HAProxy who generously offered a donation of this product for our use. View full review »

We have moved all of our basic load balancing onto these devices. We previously used Citrix NetScalers, which were expensive, harder to configure, and more challenging to troubleshoot. View full review »

I used appliances such as Alteon (Radware) which are not as good and do not support all the features required in our environment. View full review »

We used something else a long time ago. The old solution wasn't addressing our needs. View full review »

I used NGINX in my Web environment. HAProxy has more traffic shaping options and it's a dedicated VNF load-balancer. View full review »

Software Engineering Lead at a tech company with 10,001+ employees
We did use hardware loadbalancing, and still use nginx for some Layer 7 routing challenges. We switched because software defined loadbalancing allows us to dynamically adjust and codify routing decisions. This speeds up development. View full review »
