  • Centralized service discovery

    Gain real-time health status and location information for all services.

  • Secure-by-default networking

    Consul’s deny-all policy only allows communication from explicitly authorized services, keeping all service-to-service communication mutually authenticated and encrypted.

  • Service mesh deployments

    Implement a service mesh for managing service-to-service traffic on infrastructure that’s backed by HashiCorp experts and reliability.

Common use cases for Consul

  • Consul on Kubernetes

    Organizations adopting Kubernetes want to observe, secure, and automate the connections between pods and clusters. Consul on Kubernetes provides a scalable and highly resilient platform for microservices. Consul supports any Kubernetes runtime including hosted solutions like EKS, AKS, GKE, and OpenShift.

  • Discover services with Consul

    Consul acts as a centralized registry that discovers, tracks, and monitors your services regardless of the underlying runtimes, platform, or infrastructure. Consul can be your single source of truth for cataloging and maintaining a record of all your services across multiple disparate teams.

  • Zero trust networking

    A core component of HashiCorp’s zero trust security solution, Consul uses identity-based access to automatically deny service-to-service communication unless authorized explicitly on an as-needed basis. All authorized communication within the service mesh is mutually authenticated with TLS certificates and encrypted in transit.
