Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

The company at which I am working is looking to upgrade their reverse proxies from an old FreeBSD install. We just installed Cisco IronPort appliances for standard web filtering and we really like the way these things work. We are looking for something similar to do reverse proxying.

Requirements are :

  • Simplicity of configuration
  • Easy clustering capabilities
  • Speed

I do not have unlimited budget obviously but I am looking for a decent solution. I am looking for a range of products which explains why I have not included any statistics.

Thank you for your help,

I have been very happy with Bluecoat's range of products for proxying

Which of their product line does Reverse Proxying ? They have quite a few... –  Antoine Benkemoun Jul 20 '09 at 15:47
I believe all of their ProxySG line can function as both a forward and reverse proxy –  Kevin Kuphal Jul 20 '09 at 17:57
Thanks I'll have a look at that ! –  Antoine Benkemoun Jul 21 '09 at 9:54

  • F5 Networks Big-IP with Application Security Module
  • Imperva Securesphere Web Application Firewall
  • Barracuda Web Application Firewall
