Consul service mesh secures service-to-service communication with service proxies and mutual Transport Layer Security (mTLS). Learn how to allow or restrict east-west traffic using Connect.
Gain hands-on experience with Consul service mesh using internal proxies or Envoy as sidecar proxies.
Visualize the communication flow between services registered in your mesh with the topology diagram in the Consul UI.
Understand best practices for running Consul Connect service mesh in production.
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.
Configure passive health checking in Consul service mesh to detect outliers and exclude unhealthy service instances from receiving traffic.
Manage traffic across services within Consul service mesh with Envoy load balancing policies.
Enhance Consul security by creating service (L7) intentions for services registered in the mesh.
Connect two services across datacenters using Consul Connect service mesh, intention replication, WAN gossip federation, and mesh 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.
Enable communication with an external service using terminating gateways and Envoy as a sidecar proxy.
Enable inbound communications to an internal service mesh service using ingress gateways and Envoy as a sidecar proxy.
