Loadbalancer setup


I doing research now about a build in LoadBalancer Alpine - KVM template. But usually there is old example

While reading the link

Some questions:

  1. Does it still same apply under version 5.4.x?
  2. Does it still require install and setup HaProxy with current lastest template?
  3. What advantage for using Alpine - KVM template rather than I setup my own VM with install HaProxy?


Hello, I am author of that Alpine KVM appliance.

Advantages of appliance:
Use virtual routers in HA mode with floating IP

Use VM contexualization - less flexibility, you can’t add new LB nodes on the fly.
Missing support for LB attributes in oned.
