Haproxy is stable, fast and straightforward

  • November 12, 2022
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Performance out of the box is pretty decent to start with. The configuration DSL let's you express some really complicated logic eliminating the need for other traffic steering components.
What do you dislike?
Haproxy community edition needs a better UI, one that allows tweaking basic parameters directly from the UI without a full reload
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Haproxy solves traffic shaping and API gateway requirements for us. It also lets us express complex rules like sending traffic canary systems etc.

HAProxy fast and easy to get started

  • November 12, 2022
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
HAProxy is fast, it will run well on the lowest spec hardware, and you don't even need to think about resources until you have tens of thousands of connections. Config changes, even things like adjusting TLS ciphers, can be completed with a service reload, which won't impact app availability. Coming from a windows environment where this would need a reboot is a breath of fresh air.

Configuration files are easier to read and far less complex than other load balancer technologies.

You can also start with the free open source version and only look into the enterprise option if you need the features.
What do you dislike?
Default logging was always a pain, needing a local syslog instance or similar. I think this has improved but default logging and reporting out the box is very raw and you will need a good log solution to parse the logs and a tool such as graffana to make sense of it all.

Many SEIM solutions don't yet have haproxy log parsers built in. Not a fault of HAProxy but be prepared to roll your own.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Fast and effective web application load balancing. HAProxy allows us to adjust http headers, TLS ciphers and manipulate traffic to work around issues that we would struggle to do otherwise.

Amaze with performance and license price

  • November 09, 2022
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
It brings down HW Load balancing and it gives us the to use whatever HW we want to boot the HAProxy performance
What do you dislike?
The only thing this product does not support is a pool of source nat IP and we need to put source nat IP to each back end manually
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
- Perform much better then HW LBS like A10 of F5
- It gives much visibility of process traffic
- License which is not restrict to do certain things only

Very good meeting and presentation

  • November 09, 2022
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
The timers and disconnection flags, that are the best tools!
What do you dislike?
Nothing particular. Sometimes the configuration can be quite long to do what we need (but this is solved by using ansible templates)
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
We use haproxy mostly to understand ehat happen on the customers application and do some attack mitigation at a very low cost.

HAProxy is the best multi-purpose load balancer on the market

  • November 09, 2022
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
I like that HAProxy is:
+) Fast
+) Quite easy to configure once you get used to config syntax and know what you need/want
+) Uses little memory
+) Does not read or write on disk during the run (that's why it's so fast)
What do you dislike?
I'm not too fond of the following:
-) It can take some time to get used to HAProxy's config syntax
-) There are no ACLs for filters (I hope they will add them in later versions)
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
HAProxy is a reverse proxy for most of our web projects and a load balancer for sFTP and database servers. We use it both - as classic Linux installations and as Docker images.
