Sōzu is a lightweight, fast, always-up reverse proxy server.
Why use Sōzu?
- Hot configurable: Sozu can receive configuration changes at runtime through secure unix sockets.
- Upgrades without restarting: Sozu is always-up, meaning it upgrades itself while still processing requests.
- Handles SSL: Sozu handles SSL, so your backend servers can focus on what they do best.
- Protects your network: Sozu protect backends by shielding them behind the reverse proxy, limiting direct network access. Sozu uses Rust, a language primed for memory safety. And even if a worker is exploited, sozu workers are sandboxed.
