Using MaxMind GeoIP2 Databases with HAProxy Enterprise

The MaxMind module for HAProxy Enterprise enables you to perform geolocation lookups from a single point at the edge of your network allowing you to offload this work from your backend servers. This native module integration lets you analyze real-time traffic and assign GeoIP properties to requests as they pass through your HAProxy Enterprise load balancer in order to make decisions on this data. You can package the values up as HTTP request headers before the request is proxied. The integration also allows GeoIP2 databases to be updated quickly and seamlessly without the need for scripts across your application fleet.

HAProxy Enterprise combines HAProxy, the world’s fastest and most widely used, open-source load balancer, with enterprise-class features, services, and premium support.
