HAProxy | SSL/TLS termination | HTTP caching and compression
HAProxy is a widely used open source load balancing and reverse proxy software. It is a key component in many Internet applications and ensures high availability and performance by distributing incoming network traffic across multiple servers. Common use cases for HAProxy include load balancing web traffic across multiple web servers, providing SSL/TLS termination, and implementing HTTP caching and compression.

HAProxy is highly configurable and can be used with a variety of other technologies to create stable, scalable and secure applications. For example, it can be integrated with a web server such as Apache or Nginx to distribute incoming queries, and it can be used in conjunction with a database cluster to distribute queries and improve performance. In addition, HAProxy can be used with technologies such as Keepalived to implement failover and redundancy, ensuring that your application remains available even if one or more servers go down.

Overall, HAProxy is a powerful and versatile tool that can be used to improve the performance, scalability and reliability of Internet applications.

BITS experts have used HAProxy in a variety of projects. A selection of case studies and references can be found below.
