How Consul works
Consul provides a central control plane to enable multi-cloud networking for dynamic environments. Adopt a central service registry to provide a real-time directory of running services. Deliver network infrastructure automation to reduce ticketing systems. Deploy a service mesh to securely connect services.
DiscoverHashiCorp 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.
AutomateHashiCorp 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.
SecureHashiCorp 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.
AccessHashiCorp 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.
