Containers have become the standard for cloud-native application deployments. Microsoft offers tools like Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) to help manage containers within Azure environments, but how do users ensure these containers are able to securely connect to all the other necessary Azure or non-azure services?
Previously, enabling these connections required a lot of manual configurations and oversight which prevented users from taking full advantage of the scaling capabilities that cloud offers. HashiCorp Consul, through its service mesh capabilities in the Consul Connect feature, help eliminate some of these challenges.
Organizations using HashiCorp Consul can securely bridge both native and non-native Microsoft environments through a number of integrations with Azure services. This webinar explores these integrations and explains how they can be used to help accelerate the migration to microservices across public cloud and on-premise datacenters.
