In this presentation, Jeremy Lecour explores how to use HAProxy and Varnish to create a web accelerator with load balancing, caching and high-availability capabilities. Jeremy unpacks the architecture and global use cases, and dives into relevant configurations including: TLS, proxy protocol, health checks, and debugging headers.
While technical, the presentation will be accessible to anybody vaguely familiar with HAProxy, and will be interesting to anybody managing web applications. The presentation draws from the real experiences of a mature sysadmin team in an open-source oriented hosting/management company. There will be plenty of the time to answer questions during and after the presentation.
