Consul Virtual Day 2021

Join us for a 2-hour livestream event on all things Consul. Learn about the new features and updates being released, including Consul 1.10 and what’s coming up for Consul on the HashiCorp Cloud Platform (HCP Consul). We’ll also dive into our recent experiment to test out Consul’s control plane responsiveness and walk through the results.

See below for details on all sessions being presented. All sessions will be presented by members of the Consul product and engineering teams, who will also be able to answer all of your questions live.


Consul Virtual Day 2021 will include the following sessions:

Consul Global Scale Benchmark

The team recently completed a global scale benchmark to test the control plane scalability of Consul, and the results were incredible: 5 Consul servers were able to deliver control plane updates to 172,000+ service instances in under 1 second in a Consul cluster of 10,000 virtual machines. In this session, we’ll go over the experiment, including the architecture design and how we set the benchmarks, as well as review the control plane and data plan results.

Consul Service Mesh on Amazon ECS

A major goal of Consul is to provide service mesh capabilities to any runtime environment on any cloud. In working towards this, we recently announced an integration with Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS). Consul is the first open-source service mesh that is compatible with ECS. Join this session to learn more about the integration and how to get started.

Federation with HCP Consul

  • How federation differs in HCP vs. Consul OSS
