    It's awesome. Used it for several apps. I still reach for Nginx more.

    @devphobe I'm concerned about load balancing, what is performance difference between them?

    I read that nginx pro is favored in this, while HAProxy gives great speed compared to nginx open source

    @gitpush performance wise, I never maxed out the load balancer , its always my app that is the bottleneck before I see Nginx or HAProxy fail.

    The question should be ... What do you want.

    HAProxy and nginx are two very different things.

    Holy shit it's amazing!
    Especially excels as a reverse proxy with many different backends and complex rules

    @Kimmax So it excels at large load compared to nginx open source?

    @gitpush I didn’t used it but I think it’s more like openresty so you don’t need to restart / reload load balancer when you add service url or modify some configuration.

    I’m just aware it exists I use openresty and / or nginx
