HAProxy was here in the beginning and will be here in the end.

What do you like best?
HAProxy is fast. It doesn't aspire to do more than that. It's a fast TCP proxy with Layer 4 and Layer 7 functionality that makes it useful in a range of environments where you want functionality without bloat. Focus without compromise.
What do you dislike?
Because it's specialized, it's entirely possible to overlook what it's good at. Other solutions offer a toolbox of features, but by doing so, are they excellent at any one of them? My experience with HAProxy has always been that I could rely on it to do what it needed to do, where I needed it done, and I knew that once deployed, it would work tirelessly. I've never had HAProxy fail in the 10+ years I've been using it.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
I use HAProxy in front of Kubernetes clusters, either to load balance traffic to the ingress controller running on multiple nodes, or to load balance the Kubernetes API for HA clusters. I also punch TCP ports through it, do SSL termination on it, and use it for elaborate URL and header rewrites for applications that have been wedged into multiple containers but weren't designed to be carved up like that. Having a load balancer present in my environment makes it easy to use it as the frontend for all sorts of applications, giving them stable, friendly DNS names and running them as HTTPS apps instead of bizarre HTTP apps on port 3000 or 8080 or other random ports.

The piece of software that really works for what you are looking forward and really easy to learn.

What do you like best?
The simple way to install and configure. The minimum resources it requires and the availability to distribute the application per paths from different VMs/appliances. Also the easy way to set up HA.
The simplicity that you set your rules is really intuitive and the documentation is really clear.
Having also the possibility to change the configuration on-the-fly using an API is also a MUST.
Also the support is something that is always available and sometimes even go further the scope to provide an excellent experience.
What do you dislike?
There's not much I would point I would dislike. More likely would point some extra features would be a plus to have.
For example, would a GUI for configuration would be a plus. Although not mandatory for me, as I do prefer to work with config files, sometimes for some co-workers it would help to have it done easier.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Using some caching servers as Varnish, whom do not provide SSL termination, HaProxy was a natural option and the entry way for that.
As long as the application increased complexity and we would need to have HA from different services replicas, it has become more used. Furthermore, balancing between datasets was also a plus.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
There are other options on the market, but I would prefer stability, and and excellent support rather that try outs.
HAProxy has proven over the times it's ready to handle any kind of workload and you can load between TCP or HTTP, in any port or service.
Their added modules are a plus, like bot protection, WAF and HA builtin features.
