Researching load balancing for our setup and wondering if our requirement list is feasible to do with haproxy.
- SSL Termination on the load balancer
- Transparent IPv4/IPv6 ie client ip shows up on the servers
- HAProxy in a high availability setup, ie failover between 2 or more.
- Lots of sessions, (assuming we have the proper cpu/ram resources in place), I found this link https://www.linangran.com/?p=547, we are trying to build for the 200k concurrent range. 50/50 https/http
This will run in a virtual vmware environment, but I assume it’s not much different from Amazon etc.
From reading up on stuff, I think the challenge is the combination of all 4 requirements. I feel quite certain that 1 & 2 is okay, but when you add 3 & 4 its when it gets tricky.
Is this possible to do with the free haproxy or must we look at the commercial version or maybe another solution entirely?
All feedback is greatly appreciated.
