HAProxy Technologies has announced an open-source release of a VMware Open Virtual Appliance (OVA) virtual machine image of the HAProxy load balancer for vSphere, which HAProxy Technologies will maintain on GitHub.
This project enables customers to run HAProxy and its Data Plane API on VMware vSphere 7 and provides traffic routing to Tanzu Kubernetes clusters hosted on VMware vSphere 7 with Tanzu.
Earlier this year, VMware announced vSphere 7 with Tanzu, a developer-ready infrastructure that claims to deliver the fastest way to get started with Kubernetes.
The initiative helps customers run both containers and VMs on the same platform, consolidating the silos between traditional and modern apps.
vSphere 7 with Tanzu promotes flexibility, openness and choice by enabling customers to bring and use their preferred storage and networking solutions to this modern infrastructure platform.
HAProxy is a supported de facto load balancer for vSphere 7 with Tanzu, securely powering modern application delivery at any scale.
