Easy Service Discovery in Hybrid Environments with Consul


Managing a catalog of applications and services is very challenging in today's rapidly evolving world of cloud providers, containers and platform services. Operators struggle to keep up with the rate of change and old methods such as inventory spreadsheets or configuration management databases (CMDB) are slow and error prone.

HashiCorp Consul can solve these problems and give you an easy way to keep track of all the services running on various networks and platforms. Consul is a platform-agnostic service discovery and service mesh tool that you can deploy in a datacenter, cloud environment, or container platform. Consul can connect heterogeneous environments allowing legacy applications to seamlessly communicate with newer container based apps.

During this presentation you'll learn about Consul architecture and setup and see some examples of common use cases and problems that you can solve with minimal effort. 

Service discovery and service mesh do not need to be difficult - come learn why Consul is the world's most popular open source service discovery tool.
