tool for service discovery, monitoring and configuration


Consul is a tool for service discovery and configuration. Consul is distributed, highly available, and extremely scalable.

Consul provides several key features:

 - Service Discovery - Consul makes it simple for services to register
   themselves and to discover other services via a DNS or HTTP interface.
   External services such as SaaS providers can be registered as well.

 - Health Checking - Health Checking enables Consul to quickly alert operators
   about any issues in a cluster. The integration with service discovery
   prevents routing traffic to unhealthy hosts and enables service level
   circuit breakers.

 - Key/Value Storage - A flexible key/value store enables storing dynamic
   configuration, feature flagging, coordination, leader election and more.
   The simple HTTP API makes it easy to use anywhere.

 - Multi-Datacenter - Consul is built to be datacenter aware, and can support
   any number of regions without complex configuration.

Consul runs on Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows. It is recommended to run the Consul servers only on Linux, however.
