Google Cloud Load Balancing vs HAProxy: What are the differences?

Developers describe Google Cloud Load Balancing as "A global load balancing on Google's worldwide network". You can scale your applications on Google Compute Engine from zero to full-throttle with it, with no pre-warming needed. You can distribute your load-balanced compute resources in single or multiple regions, close to your users and to meet your high availability requirements. On the other hand, HAProxy is detailed as "The Reliable, High Performance TCP/HTTP Load Balancer". HAProxy (High Availability Proxy) is a free, very fast and reliable solution offering high availability, load balancing, and proxying for TCP and HTTP-based applications.

Google Cloud Load Balancing and HAProxy can be categorized as "Load Balancer / Reverse Proxy" tools.

Instagram, Dropbox, and Medium are some of the popular companies that use HAProxy, whereas Google Cloud Load Balancing is used by Evernote, PointsHound, and BetterCloud. HAProxy has a broader approval, being mentioned in 602 company stacks & 1060 developers stacks; compared to Google Cloud Load Balancing, which is listed in 11 company stacks and 4 developer stacks.

      What are some alternatives to Google Cloud Load Balancing and HAProxy?
      AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB)
      With Elastic Load Balancing, you can add and remove EC2 instances as your needs change without disrupting the overall flow of information. If one EC2 instance fails, Elastic Load Balancing automatically reroutes the traffic to the remaining running EC2 instances. If the failed EC2 instance is restored, Elastic Load Balancing restores the traffic to that instance. Elastic Load Balancing offers clients a single point of contact, and it can also serve as the first line of defense against attacks on your network. You can offload the work of encryption and decryption to Elastic Load Balancing, so your servers can focus on their main task.
