  • Discover

    HashiCorp Consul provides a single source of truth to discover and connect services by creating a central registry for all applications. Consul dynamically registers/deregisters services as changes are made and provides real-time health checks on whether those services are reachable or not.
  • Automate

    HashiCorp Consul enables networking infrastructure automation across any environment. Leveraging integrations with the most networking vendors, Consul can automate common networking tasks, reducing the burden on operators and eliminating ticketing systems.
  • Secure

    HashiCorp Consul provides identity-driven controls to ensure zero-trust security across any environment. Consul secures and encrypts connections, and enables operators to define approved traffic patterns based on service identity.
  • Access

    HashiCorp Consul's API Gateway securely routes external client requests to internal services running on Consul's service mesh. Consul simplifies the user experience to consistently manage both north-south with east-west traffic.
