A versatile TCP proxy

  • December 31, 2021
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
HA-Proxy is a TCP proxy that you can use to load balance any kind of TCP connection. While most will use it for load balancing HTTP/S connections, I am using it also for RabbitMQ and PostgreSQL connections like a charm.
What do you dislike?
When you need to write conditionals for routing (web) traffic the configuration you need to write is a bit cumbersome.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I am using it to load balance between web servers. I am also using it to achieve high availability between PostgreSQL servers (for read-only operations) and for accessing remote RabbitMQ servers from specifically whitelisted hosts.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you need a TCP proxy, HA-Proxy is the most likely choice when you want to "graduate" from nginx. I am using the open source version.

Solid product, backed by a solid development team, reinforced by enterprise-grade support

  • December 22, 2021
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Developers - The developers who have created and maintain the HAProxy core software, are a highly knowledgeable and dedicated group of people. They're also very responsive when it comes to communicating with users on public mailing lists, etc. All in all, it's a very passionate group of people.

Community - HAProxy also has a very large community following, and there's always someone available (mailing list, slack, IRC, StackExchange, etc) that is able to help with any general or specific issue or question you might have.

Enterprise - And, as if the development teams and large helpful community weren't enough, the HAPEE (HAProxy Enterprise Edition) offering includes a pile of additional modules that take an already-amazing product, and crank it to 11. Furthermore, it's backed by a phenomenal team of people. Everyone that I've worked with, from Sales and Marketing to Engineering and Support, have been extremely personable, very quick to respond, and always willing to bend over backwards to help us as customers.
What do you dislike?
To be completely honest, I've got nothing to say here. Any issues I've ever had in the past were quickly taken care of.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We're using HAProxy as a load balancer for a wide variety of traffic, both internal and customer facing. It does so much more for us than just "balancing the load," though. With the highly-customizable logging, we're able to be very in-tune with all of the traffic that goes through it. With the rich request manipulation functionality, we're able to easily solve many problems that would be much more difficult to tackle at other layers of our stack. With ACLs and stick tables, we are able to police traffic in ways that would otherwise be extremely convoluted and disjointed.

And the best part is, even though we're arguably power users, we've barely scratched the surface of the myriad possibilities that HAProxy brings to the table.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
The documentation may be daunting at first, but cruise through the sections that are most closely related to the problems you're trying to solve. Check out the community IRC/Slack and ask any questions as you're getting started. If you're looking for examples of how others have implemented something similar to what you're trying to do, Google it -- there are plenty of resources available.

HAPEE is very reasonably priced. Don't let the large price tag of other players in this space prevent you from reaching out to the Haproxy Enterprises team. They'll be more than willing to work with you, figure out your needs, and connect you with the correct resources.

Experience with HAProxy in development, test & production environment

  • September 06, 2021
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Although the primary purpose of the software is to be load balancer, I'm using it as proxy because Kubernetes & Docker do other stuff. Amazing things can be achieved with HAProxy when it comes to Redirection and Routing, every possible detail imaginable. When it comes to connecting Microservices, it ends the right thing.
What do you dislike?
Everything is amazing. It is very easy to learn
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Redirection, Routing, Microservices, SSL
