A distributed HTTP and websocket proxy

What is Hipache?

Hipache is a distributed proxy designed to route high volumes of http and websocket traffic to unusually large numbers of virtual hosts, in a highly dynamic topology where backends are added and removed several times per second. It is particularly well-suited for PaaS (platform-as-a-service) and other environments that are both business-critical and multi-tenant.

Hipache is a tool in the Load Balancer / Reverse Proxy category of a tech stack.

Hipache is an open source tool with 2.25K Github Stars and 265 Github Forks. Here’s a link to Hipache's open source repository on Github
