Running Consul at Scale—Journey from RFC to Production

Running Consul at Scale—Journey from RFC to Production

We had many VMs in AWS - were ingesting millions of metrics per second - and were having pain around service discovery and quick configuration changes. This is the story of how we integrated Consul into our environment, what it helped us with, mistakes we made and some tips for successful implementation in your own environment. 10 months later, our growing cluster was using Consul to facilitate 60 second cluster-wide configuration changes and make service discovery simpler and more flexible.

This presentation was given at SREcon16 in Santa Clara, California on April 8, 2016.
