HAProxy is a reverse proxy used for load distribution. The project began in 2001 and was written by Willy Tarreau.

It natively handles HTTP protocol, enabling the set-up of session affinity by means of cookies. It has a number of status verification mechanisms used to detect any failed servers and to redirect their traffic to other servers.

HAProxy is distributed under the GPL v2 and is officially supported by a small number of companies.
