Organizations typically prefer to use a distributed model for Kubernetes deployments. Rather than maintain a single cluster, they connect multiple environments for testing, staging, and production.
Creating consistency when connecting Kubernetes to non-Kubernetes environments can be challenging, workflows need additional automation to accommodate many virtual machines or containers.
Securing Kubernetes networking with multiple layers of policies can be challenging. Organizations need to apply policies at both the application layer and network layer to ensure consistent security.
Consul and Kubernetes provide a scalable and highly resilient platform for microservices. Consul supports any Kubernetes runtime including hosted solutions like EKS, AKS, GKE, and OpenShift.
