HAProxy and ZEVENET Comparison

HAProxy and ZEVENET Comparison

 

Zevenet vs HAProxy, comparison between HAProxy and Zevenet, HAProxy alternative, load balancer, ADC, application delivery controller

Strengths

Disruptive vision with a stable growth as challengers in the ADC market, with an agile team and engaged community.
Innovation driven with Open Source technology with no vendor lock-in and broad platforms integration (hardware, virtual, bare metal and cloud).
Very high cost-effective solutions without limitation products and services, suitable for both midsize organizations and large enterprises.
Investment in R&D to deliver a technology driven by easiness, performance and security.

Weaknesses

Young brand as an open source company and yet to develop a big influence than other more established vendors.
Needs to develop a broader partnership network.

Technical Specs

Is a TCP and HTTP proxy with load balancing capabilities.
Is an user space application and hence it has to live with the limitations that it has like the limitation of 65535 open ports or the limitation of the number of file descriptors (sockets).
Is able to load balance applications through LAN networks.

Is a complete ADC (Application Delivery Controller) that could manage all kinds of network protocols (UDP, TCP, HTTP/S, SCTP, SIP, T/FTP, …) but also with a combination of all of them simultaneously and multiport capabilities.
Is a combination of kernel layer load balancing and user space applications that permits the flexibility to avoid the user space limitations and much more performance for every use case (close to the performance of a router or firewall).
It can not only balance the load of applications in LAN, but also uplinks with the DSLB (Datalink Service Load Balancing) or at WAN level with the GSLB (Global Service Load Balancing) module.
Its operating system is fully optimized for networking so it is capable to move in layer 7 more than 140 thousand concurrent users and in layer 4 more than 10 million concurrent users with only 2 dedicated cores.
Provides advanced health checks (analyzing and parsing responses from application servers) with high programmability capabilities.
Provides some advanced load distributors to capture the CPU load or response speed of the servers so you can make decisions about the server that is least loaded, in addition to basic weight, round robin, etc.
Ability to create configuration backups, easy cluster configuration, automatic replication from one node to another and stateful cluster with real time sessions replications that permits a failover between nodes without losing any connection.
Provides full usage statistics and RRD graphs for analysis of machine resources and balancing farms, as well as email alerts.
Provides an integrated IPDS security system with real time black hole lists, DoS protection, black/white listing and protection of the most common network attacks.
Is able to manage network interfaces, virtual interfaces, VLANs, bonding interfaces, routing and all the required networking settings easily.
Can be easily deployed for source/destination NAT infrastructures and transparent ones (both in one-arm and two-armed mode).
Provides a very UX graphic interface for both operators and network engineers in Angular 2 technology.
Automation capabilities thanks to it’s fully programmable REST+JSON API.
