Getting Started with Consul Service Mesh for Virtual Machines
In this tutorial, you will learn how to configure Consul as a service mesh to encrypt and control traffic between services on virtual machines.
Secure Service Communication with Consul Service Mesh and Envoy
Gain hands-on experience with Consul service mesh using internal proxies or Envoy as sidecar proxies.
Visualize Service Mesh Communication in the Consul UI
Visualize the communication flow between services registered in your mesh with the topology diagram in the Consul UI.
Consul Connect Service Mesh in Production
Understand best practices for running Consul Connect service mesh in production.
Traffic Splitting for Service Deployments
Split layer-7 traffic, using Envoy proxies configured by Consul, to roll out a new version of a service. You can use this method for zero-downtime, blue-green, and canary deployments.
Implement Circuit Breaking in Consul Service Mesh with Envoy
Configure passive health checking in Consul service mesh to detect outliers and exclude unhealthy service instances from receiving traffic.
Load Balancing Services in Consul Service Mesh with Envoy
Manage traffic across services within Consul service mesh with Envoy load balancing policies.
Application Aware Intentions with Consul Service Mesh
Enhance Consul security by creating service (L7) intentions for services registered in the mesh.
Connect Services Across Datacenters with Mesh Gateways
Connect two services across datacenters using Consul Connect service mesh, intention replication, WAN gossip federation, and mesh gateways.
Understand Terminating Gateways
Understand how terminating gateways, Consul's egress proxies, can provide connectivity to external destinations by terminating Consul Connect mTLS connections, enforcing Consul intentions, and forwarding requests to appropriate destination services.
Connect External Services to Consul With Terminating Gateways
Enable communication with an external service using terminating gateways and Envoy as a sidecar proxy.
