» Getting Started

The Getting Started guides will help you learn the basics of using Consul. They will walk you through how to set up a local development instance of Consul to practice running an agent, starting a service, and using Connect. Then you will set up a couple Consul servers and connect them to make a small cluster.

After completing the guides, you will be familiar with all three of Consul’s use cases, service discovery, service configuration, and service segmentation. Continue to the Getting Started guides on our learning platform learn.hashicorp.com.
