HAProxy is offering some Free Aloha Pockets for Students & Interns for their Labs! I confess I did email them and hope they opt to send me a pair.
In either case, over the next few weeks I’m going to test using haproxy instead of nginx as the frontend for my apache2 site. This must do HTTP/2, SSL and some headers cleanup. My tests will be fully feature based and not performance based as I’m using different hardware for each task.
