HAProxy as Egress Controller

November 12th (Tuesday) \ Session 3 \ Main stage

HAProxy is often used to route ingress traffic, but we use it the other way around. We use it for egress. Our applications talk to the outside world through HAProxy. We get a lot of benefits from this unique approach: throttling, guaranteed response times, unified monitoring, and path rewriting. I will highlight how we use HAProxy at Inuits and how we achieve observability via Prometheus and Grafana.
