Reddit: haproxy on centos

Monday 26th of February 2018 10:27:20 PM

If you have any trouble finding the latest rpm for centos some guys have put together a great recipe for making one. Huge thanks to these guys.

It's interesting and sucks that redhat "looks" to be blocking the rpm for haproxy.

  • They want you to just buy redhat.
  • haproxy has enterprise support called: hapee
  • They seem to care enough to not allow any centos packages for haproxy

Ubuntu/fedora are the other major distros look to be just fine with installing haproxy. But CentOS has no such luck.

Posting a bunch of resource links that I found before finding the rpm recipe above.

hapee link:



4 year old post: quote below:

HAProxy is not part of CentOS, but it used to be part of the Fedora EPEL repository. However since RHEL6.4 HAProxy is part of Red Hat's Load Balancer product/addon and EPEL's policy to not conflict with Red Hat's offerings resulted in HAProxy to be removed from Fedora's EPEL repository.

Since HAProxy is part of RHEL's released product (albeit as an addon and a Technology Preview) it means CentOS does include it in their normal CentOS-6.4 offering (much like it includes other addon products, e.g. High-Availability). This means CentOS includes it in its main repository.

Beware that, while it may not be obvious to a lot of CentOS users, haproxy is a Technology Preview, which means that it is not (yet) supported by Red Hat, either because Red Hat does not feel comfortable supporting it already, or because they expect another major/minor release update, or the roadmap for the product is still changing (new functionality, known bugs). Whatever the reason the lack of support means there are reasons for Red Hat to assume the support cannot be guaranteed, which is something a CentOS user should be aware of as the CentOS project does not specifically mention this.

I am a product manager for a company that is building a product with linux in China. Last week, a consultant told us that if we use any open source code and modify it then we are required to publish our code. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Is this accurate?

TuxMachines: 5 keys to building open hardware

Monday 26th of February 2018 05:23:29 PM

The science community is increasingly embracing free and open source hardware (FOSH). Researchers have been busy hacking their own equipment and creating hundreds of devices based on the distributed digital manufacturing model to advance their scientific experiments.

A major reason for all this interest in distributed digital manufacturing of scientific FOSH is money: Research indicates that FOSH slashes costs by 90% to 99% compared to proprietary tools. Commercializing scientific FOSH with open hardware business models has supported the rapid growth of an engineering subfield to develop FOSH for science, which comes together annually at the Gathering for Open Science Hardware.

A side-by-side comparison of MongoDB and Cassandra databases

They're both databases, obviously. More importantly, they are both examples of NoSQL databases. NoSQL is a type of database architecture in which data is stored in a relatively unstructured fashion. Compared to more traditional SQL-style databases, NoSQL can be a more efficient way of storing the large quantities of unstructured data that organizations commonly use for big data operations. MongoDB and Cassandra are also both open source -- although commercial implementations are available, too. But even in that respect, they are not identical. MongoDB is governed by GNU Affero General Public License 3.0, whereas Cassandra is subject to Apache License 2.0. Read more
