I am interested in setting up HAProxy for use as a load balancer for a set of small traffic web applications. The use is growing and might become medium sized in the near term (6 months or so). Mainly we are looking balance load becuase some customers want their own dedicated server, some what to be as low cost as possible so to accomodate we seem to need a load balancer.
I looked at the HAProxy home and some of the blogs but they really dont get into the specifics or are huge sites using sun servers for the application
What kind of hardware and which distrobution would anyone recommend in terms of processor, memory, storage and distrobution are you using or would recommend for such an application?
thanks in advance
