Consul is a tool that provides Service Discovery, Distributed Failure Detection, and a Key/Value Store with support for multiple datacenters. In this course, you’ll learn how to use Consul to build scalable and reliable infrastructure.
Imagine a new kind of cluster. One which takes control of new machines on the fly, deploys all your services in the right order, links related applications together, balances load, restarts and moves containers after failures. A cluster that is – figuratively speaking – becoming self aware.
i’m looking forward to taking this course – containers will be a key part of MicroService architecture operations (IMO!). originally posted on Pluralsight
