Global Visibility and Control for HashiCorp Consul

The new global management plane for Consul is now available as a free public beta. Here's all you need to know about it.

At HashiConf Global 2022, we introduced a technical preview for a new management plane service on the HashiCorp Cloud Platform (HCP) for Consul to provide global visibility and control for both self-managed and HashiCorp-managed Consul clusters. It's now available to try for free in a public beta.

»What You'll Learn in This Talk

Consul operators will see tremendous benefits from using HCP as a management plane:

  • Get started quickly on your first use case for Kubernetes: Bootstrap new self-hosted Kubernetes clusters quickly with a secure Consul configuration. Bootstrapping is currently limited to new Kubernetes clusters.

  • View health status of all Consul clusters: View self-managed and HashiCorp-managed cluster health in a single management plane.

  • Discover all services registered with the Consul clusters: In a centralized view, see all discovered and registered services across self-managed and HashiCorp-managed clusters, and access the Consul UI securely from the management plane.
