Hipache vs node-http-proxy: What are the differences?

What is Hipache? A distributed HTTP and websocket proxy. 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.

What is node-http-proxy? A full-featured http proxy for node.js. node-http-proxy is an HTTP programmable proxying library that supports websockets. It is suitable for implementing components such as proxies and load balancers.

Hipache and node-http-proxy can be primarily classified as "Load Balancer / Reverse Proxy" tools.

Hipache and node-http-proxy are both open source tools. node-http-proxy with 10.3K GitHub stars and 1.54K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Hipache with 2.25K GitHub stars and 264 GitHub forks.

          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.
          HAProxy
          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.
