Load Balancer with HAProxy 1.5dev (v13.5)

Open in Dashboard

Published by RightScale Open Source on Feb 06, 2014Revision: 13 This component has been deprecated by the publisher.



This ServerTemplate configures an HAProxy load balancer using the latest development version of haproxy(1.5dev22). This gives the template SSL support through haproxy without the need for Apache. Various OS parameters are modified for performance tuning. Please allow for some thorough testing before using this ServerTemplate in production.

It is designed to work in a hybrid cloud setting, and with application server and database ServerTemplates as part of a three-tier web architecture. It also includes iptables management for clouds that do not have firewall services. This ServerTemplate is on the Infinity Lineage.

Key Features:

  • Supports both HTTP and HTTPS
  • Firewall management within a three-tier scalable web architecture
  • Utilizes RightScale tag-based routing for connecting to application servers
  • Routes to multiple application servers based on subdomain
