HAProxy Enterprise Edition 1.8r1 Adds HTTP/2, Dynamic Scaling, WAF, and Other Key Enterprise Features

BOSTON, May 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HAProxy Technologies, the company behind the world's fastest and most widely used software load balancer, is announcing the release of HAProxy  Enterprise Edition 1.8r1. HAProxy Enterprise Edition 1.8r1 is built on top of the monumental stable release of HAProxy 1.8 with additional enhancements that help enterprises manage and secure modern application environments across the full spectrum of today's threats.

HAProxy Enterprise Edition 1.8r1 contains a number of powerful improvements in performance and application acceleration such as support for HTTP/2, Multithreading, and Small Object Caching. There are also significant improvements in dynamic capabilities for cloud and microservices environments including Hitless Reloads, DNS for Service Discovery, Server Templates, and improved Runtime API functionality.

"This is the biggest and possibly most anticipated release of HAProxy Enterprise Edition we have ever had," said Willy Tarreau, CTO HAProxy Technologies. "I'm very proud of the whole HAProxy Technologies R&D team as well as the community contributors for their hard work in advancing HAProxy in multiple key areas including fast and secure edge and microservices delivery, while maintaining the proven reliability that it is known for."

HAProxy Enterprise Edition 1.8r1 ships with an enterprise suite which contains administration and security-focused add-ons that have the same level of high performance that users expect from HAProxy. The latest additions include a new Web Application Firewall, Stick Table Aggregator with real time, cluster-wide tracking for improved DDoS attack and bot protection, direct integration with Google reCAPTCHA, Single Sign On (SSO) support, and significant improvements to the Real Time Dashboard.

"As the company behind the world's fastest and most widely used software load balancer, we have been trusted by millions of websites to continually deliver highly secure and reliable products," said Dujko Radovnikovic, CEO HAProxy Technologies. "Our latest release strengthens this trust by providing a powerful set of new features to manage and secure modern applications while maintaining our best-in-class performance and reliability."

"We initially chose HAProxy Enterprise Edition over other software load balancers due to its performance and reliability. Since then we've worked closely with the HAProxy Technologies team to provide feedback and leverage their support. We are very excited to see the 1.8r1 release which not only includes many useful capabilities, but also incorporates many of our own feature requests," said Scott Bruce, Director of Application Architecture, dataxu.

HAProxy 1.8 and HAProxy Enterprise Edition 1.8r1 Key Enhancements:

  • HTTP/2 Support - Support for clients to communicate with the load balancer via the HTTP/2 protocol.

  • Multithreading - Splits processing across multiple threads while sharing the same memory space.

  • HTTP Small Object Caching - Caches small objects in memory.

  • Hitless Reloads - Reloads of HAProxy do not lose any connections for upgrades or changes to the configuration.

  • Server Templates - Enables the provisioning of multiple backend servers with a single server line to be filled in during runtime.

  • reCAPTCHA Module - Enables presenting anomalous clients with Google reCAPTCHA v2 challenges which can protect websites from bots and other types of automated threats while letting real users pass through with ease.

  • SSO Module - Enables the implementation of SSO (Single Sign On) on a Microsoft Active Directory domain.
