Leadership in G2 Winter Reports for Container Networking with Innovative Kubernetes Solutions

  • Grid® Report for Container Networking

  • Momentum Grid® Report for Container Networking


This recognition is a testament to HAProxy's track record of delivering cutting-edge technology solutions that meet the evolving needs of cloud-native application teams for container ingress, load balancing, and multi-cluster routing.

The HAProxy Kubernetes Ingress Controller is an open source solution for container ingress that has been downloaded more than 47 million times. It is known for its fast performance, seamless integration with Kubernetes, and efficient traffic routing. 

“Awesome tool in ingress controller” says a newly-posted 5-star review of HAProxy by a principal engineer in the Enterprise segment. Another reviewer using HAProxy for Kubernetes routing wrote, “Automagically. Works great for routing purposes. No complaints.”

HAProxy Fusion 1.2 and HAProxy Enterprise introduce a transformative approach to external load balancing and multi-cluster routing that simplify deploying and using Kubernetes in complex scenarios. 

The combination of HAProxy Fusion’s centralized management, monitoring, and automation with Kubernetes Service Discovery enables users to automate identifying backend services (such as Kubernetes pods) and configuring external traffic routing and load balancing on the HAProxy Enterprise nodes in a deployment. This enables many new use cases, including:

  • External load balancing for on-premises Kubernetes

  • Multi-cluster routing and load balancing for Kubernetes

  • Testing in production (such as blue/green) with multi-cluster Kubernetes

  • Multi-region failover for Kubernetes clusters in multiple regions or data centers.

These innovative capabilities effectively address the complexities of traffic routing with dynamic Kubernetes backends, improving scalability and reliability and providing flexibility for more deployment models. 

A reviewer using HAProxy Enterprise and HAProxy Fusion for enterprise load balancing, security, reports, and data visualizations praised HAProxy’s outstanding support with a 5-star review: “Timely, knowledgeable and professional support with onboarding and day to day support. I can't think of any dislikes.”

“It’s exciting to take the number one spot in the Container Networking category,” said Andjelko Iharos, Director of Engineering, HAProxy Technologies. “Our Kubernetes solutions are helping to solve some of our customers’ most complex challenges. Service discovery in HAProxy Fusion Control Plane makes possible the powerful automation that teams need to keep Kubernetes simple and efficient at scale.”
