Consul is a tool for service networking, discovery, and configuration. It provides a way to connect and secure services across any runtime platform and public or private cloud. With Consul, users can connect services across multiple data centers and cloud providers, securely automate network configurations, and centralize service management and governance.
Consul is written in the Go programming language and is available as a binary package for various operating systems and architectures. It uses Raft consensus algorithm for high availability and consistency among nodes. Consul supports multiple discovery methods such as DNS, HTTP, and gRPC. It also supports various authentication and authorization methods such as token-based and TLS-based authentication. Consul can be integrated with other tools and systems through its API and plugins.
