comment Using cloudflare as the only load balancer
This depends on your setup really. If CloudFlare has n source (A/AAAA) addresses to pull from, you get load balancing in that manner from their side as well. Most don't fall under this many-external-addresses category, but it's definitely a valid setup, even more so as IPv6 setups make external addressing plentiful.

comment Haproxy SSL handshake failure
Is the SSL endpoint externally accessible? If so run against SSL Labs (free) and see if there's a client/cipher suite combination you're really not expecting, here's an example: ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=stackoverflow.com

comment Configuring SQL for optimal performance… SSD or HDD?
@PeteT - it varies/depends a bit, remember that one particular log is sequential yes, but on a server hosting many databases (like Stack Exchange hosting many sites at a database per) the actual behavior is much closer to random access/writes than sequential, so it depends on what/how much you're running.
