Layer 7 Observability and Centralized Configuration with Consul Service Mesh

Microservices architecture unlocks greater efficiency and agility for application development. However, it comes with significant complexity in service to service communication. As the performance of a business application is relying on real-time interaction across hundreds of services over the network, organizations need visibility and control of the dynamic connectivity between services in a distributed environment. A service mesh is designed as a dedicated networking layer to tackle these challenges and its support for observability has become a number one requirement to help users better understand and optimize the behavior of their applications and the system.
