HashiCorp launches Consul Connect during HashiDays Amsterdam

Consul was already an awesome product for service discovery, but now with Consul Connect it’s even more awesome. HashiCorp integrated service mesh features into Consul, that makes connecting services more secure and manageable.

HashiCorp explains the problem like this: managing infrastructure across teams becomes more and more complex due to the fact that infrastructure nowadays is a lot more dynamic. You can’t just file a ticket for a firewall change anymore, because that change may be obsolete in minutes. Schedulers reschedule services all the time.

The solution Hashicorp came up with is Consul Connect. Consul uses service policies to codify which services are allowed to communicate. It also secures the communication using mutual TLS. Consul Connect aims to integrate with existing proxies and products, as the smart stuff all happens at Layer 4.

At Instruqt, we’re using the products of HashiCorp a lot. Our platform makes use of Terraform and we have used Consul in the past. So we’re really excited about this product!

Consul Connect webinterface

We’ve been secretly collaborating with HashiCorp to create a Consul Connect track on Instruqt. By playing this track, you will learn how to enable the Connect features in Consul, and how to create your first service policy. And if you’re at HashiDays Amsterdam, you can play the arcade challenge on our Instruqt arcade machine. Have fun!
