The key to service mesh adoption is making it easy for platform engineers to implement it. HashiCorp Consul has usability features that make team-by-team separation and adoption at large scale fast and manageable.
Consul 1.13 introduces a new federation model that enables connecting and routing to services running across independent service mesh environments.
This deep dive and demo highlights how to deploy and peer service meshes across networking boundaries, which are common in large organizations with multiple autonomous product teams. We will describe how the new peering model provides authorization controls and secures service communication between autonomous service meshes, connecting and routing services running across different datacenters.
