Multi-Platform Service Mesh
Create a consistent platform for modern application networking and security with identity based authorization, L7 traffic management, and service-to-service encryption.
Federate Consul between multiple clusters and environments creating a global service mesh. Consistently apply policies and security across platforms.
Secure Service-to-Service Communication
Automatic mTLS communication between services both inside Kubernetes and in traditional runtime platforms. Extend and integrate with external certificate platforms like Vault.
Layer 7 Traffic Management
Service-to-service communication policy at Layer 7 enables progressive delivery of application communication. Leverage Blue/Green or Canary deployment patterns for applications, enabling advanced traffic management patterns such as service failover, path-based routing, and traffic shifting that can be applied across public and private clouds, platforms, and networks.
Integrate and Extend in Kubernetes
Quickly deploy Consul on Kubernetes leveraging Helm. Automatically inject sidecars for Kubernetes resources. Federate multiple clusters into a single service mesh.
Connect and Extend Service Mesh for Any Workload
Integrate with existing services and applications by leveraging Consul ingress and terminating gateways. Extend between complex networks and multi-cloud topologies with Consul mesh gateways.
Rich ecosystem community extends Consul’s functionality into spaces such as networking, observability, and security.
Gain insight into service health and performance metrics with a built-in visualization directly in the Consul UI or by exporting metrics to a third-party solution.
Scale to Enterprise
Consul addresses the challenge of running a service mesh at enterprise scale from both an environmental complexity and resiliency perspective.
When to consider Consul Enterprise
Consul Open Source enables individuals to discover services and securely manage connections between them across cloud, on-prem, and hybrid environments.
