Main Features of HAProxy Enterprise Edition

  • HAProxy Enterprise ADC
  • Enterprise Suite
  • Technical Support

Load Balancing

  • Comprehensive
    LB Methods
    Basic and advanced LB methods including static and weighted round-robin, weighted least connection, client IP or URI-hash based
  • Advanced Routing Decisions Route requests on multiple properties on any layer - from IP all the way to the application. Examples include IP address, TCP ports, SSL information or HTTP path components and many more
  • Stickiness/Persistence Multiple persistence methods based on TCP/IP information (client IP, port or TCP payload) or any property of the HTTP request (cookies, headers, URI, etc.)
  • Extensive ACL System Extensive ACL system with support for making decisions based on any TCP/IP information or HTTP property
  • LUA Scripting Support LUA scripting allows you to create Lua scripts that extend load balancing functionality in almost any way

High Availability

  • Advanced Health Checks Multiple advanced health checking options including complex HTTP requests, agent-checks, external scripts and more
  • Slow Stop/Start Support Graceful server shutdown (drain) and startup (slow start)
  • Traffic Overload Protection Protects backends against overloading and handles requests with queues
  • Route Health Injection (RHI) An optimized version of a third party software that allows for the control of routing protocol announcement based on the health of the network and the HAPEE service for active/active clustering.
  • VRRP An optimized version of a third party software that allows for better interaction between HAPEE and the VRRP protocol on switches for active/passive clustering.

Application Acceleration

  • High Performance SSL/TLS Enhances security, accelerates page loads and reduces backend demands
  • Advanced SSL Algorithm Selection Automatic selection of ECC or RSA allows you to have all the efficiency of ECC without any of the risk or complexity
  • Compression HTTP compression support to offload backend servers
  • GeoIP Support A high-performance map-driven engine allows you to do GeoIP or other database lookups in HAProxy with millions of entries with negligible performance impact
  • Device Detection Support for multiple device detection libraries makes it possible to make decisions on the load balancer level as well as deliver the best device data for your backend application to use
  • Connection Buffering Support for accelerating TCP/HTTP requests with buffering
  • Backend Connections Reduction Ability to share idle connections between clients to improve performance and lessen the load on backend servers


  • Reverse Proxy Having a reverse proxy protects your infrastructure from probing and attacks
  • HTTP Validation Validates that the request is in full compliance with HTTP standards, protecting the backend from unknown threats
  • Advanced Application-based DDoS Protection Provides application-based DDoS protection
  • Anomalous Behavior Protection Brute force/scraping and fraud protection
  • Dynamic ACL Updates Dynamic management of whitelists, blacklists and URL restrictions
  • Traffic Filtering Filtering of any element of HTTP/HTTPS request or response
  • Antibot Module Send JavaScript challenges to suspicious clients to help distinguish between a real user and an automated bot
  • Fingerprint Module Efficiently separate real search engines from DDoS bots pretending to be search engines
  • Sanitize Module Filter and verify HTTP headers to ensure application security
  • WAF Offloader Module High-performance blacklist-based WAF module that protects your sites against SQL injection and XSS attacks
  • Advanced WAF Module (beta) High-performance whitelist-based WAF module allows for a very high level of protection for even the most insecure web applications


  • Runtime API Allows viewing load balancer information and statistics as well as performing administrative actions such as adding/removing servers, updating server IP address and port information, ACLs, maps, TLS keys, and state
  • Extensive Logging Built-in advanced logging features to offload backend servers and provide useful insight into the timing events of each request
  • Client IP Forwarding in TCP Mode PROXY protocol support allows forwarding the client IP to backends for TCP servers such as MySQL as well as receiving information from other proxies
  • SNMP Integrate statistics not only about HAProxy but also about the frontends and backends it services into many popular graphing/monitoring tools
  • Real Time Dashboard (beta) Provides a view of your services’ health, rates and load along with aggregation of stats across multiple instances. In addition, it facilitates administrative tasks such as enabling, disabling and draining backends. Tasks can also be automated.
  • Configuration API (CLI and REST) Create or update the configuration on both the command line and over HTTP with multi-tenant support to keep your services separate
  • Update Module (LB and TLS) Update maps, ACLs and TLS ticket keys automatically during runtime from any HTTP server
  • Stick Table Aggregator (coming soon) Aggregate view of in memory counters across your whole load balancing infrastructure allows you to define cluster wide tracking policies that efficiently detect problematic or malicious behavior


  • Authoritative The team which is authoritative on HAProxy
  • Knowledgeable No need to worry about searching documentation again
  • Proactive Proactive team will identify and resolve your issues before you even notice them
