Upgrade Multiple Federated Consul Datacenters
Upgrade your federated Consul datacenters without downtime and ensuring federation and ACL replication is mantained.
Use Autopilot features to monitor the Raft cluster, introduce stable servers, and clean up dead servers.
Automate Upgrades with Consul Enterprise
Upgrade your Consul datacenters without downtime using automated upgrades. This functionally is provided through the Enterprise feature of autopilot. Autopilot allows you to add new servers directly to the datacenter and waits until you have enough servers running the new version to perform a leadership change and demote the old servers as "non-voters".
Provide Fault Tolerance with Redundancy Zones
Use Consul’s redundancy zones to provide high availability in the case of server failure through the Enterprise feature of autopilot. Autopilot allows you to add “non-voting” servers to your datacenter that will be promoted to the "voting" status in case of voting server failure.
Understand how to recover from a Consul outage due to a majority of server nodes in a datacenter being lost.
Disaster Recovery for the Primary Datacenter
Recover from losing the primary datacenter in a federated environment.
Partition Datacenters with Network Segments
Set up multiple segments in your datacenter, and configure a prepared query to limit service discovery to the services in the local agent's network segment.
Federate Multiple Datacenters with Network Areas
Use network areas for advanced datacenter federation. Network areas specify a relationship between a pair of Consul datacenters.
Add & Remove Consul Servers
There are several methods for adding or removing servers from the Consul datacenter. Learn the best practices for each method.
Troubleshoot Common Consul Issues
Find and fix problems with your Consul datacenter using built-in and external tools.
Rotate Gossip Encryption Keys in Consul
Rotate gossip encryption keys in your Consul datacenter to keep datacenter secure.
Authenticate Users with Single Sign-On (SSO) and Auth0
Use Auth0 as an OIDC auth method in Consul Enterprise for single sign-on (SSO).
