HAProxy

I've had good experiences with most things that I've attempted using HAProxy. About the only thing I haven't tried yet is setting up an HA Pair using VRRP which I just found out is even a possibility. But it does great at terminating SSL on HTTPS VIPs which is most of what I've used it for, About the only thing I haven't figured out yet is one specific use case I have setup on a pair of F5s for syslog forwarding to multiple destinations, but I also haven't spent a ton of time looking into it since I think there's a limitation with UDP traffic and HAProxy.

It's an amazingly simple and easy to use product with a huge community and tons of write-ups online. If you need to do something usually the answer is only a few quick searches away. On top of that the cost of free unless you want/need to pay for commercial support is incredibly hard to argue with too.

We haven't used customer support. We mostly used the community version. We build a multi-node HAProxy cluster with HA to the proxy itself using opensource plugins available. With the support available on the internet and the documents available we don't need to use much customer support.
