What is HAProxy?
HAProxy is a free, open source, high availability load balancer and proxy for TCP and HTTP. This box installs and configures an HAProxy load balancer.
An instance executing this box uses bash scripts and chef-solo to download, install, and configure Nginx. Box events manage the Nginx lifecycle as follows:
install: Installs HAProxy depending on the platform.
configure: Downloads the configuration file, applying to it the desired configuration.
start: Starts HAProxy.
