Running Consul at scale: Service discovery in the cloud

by darron froese

Published September 21, 2016 in Technology

Datadog had 400 VMs in AWS, was ingesting millions of metrics per second, and was having pain around service discovery and quick configuration changes. Darron Froese discusses how Datadog integrated Consul into its environment. Eighteen months later, Datadog’s 1,000+ VMs receiving millions more metrics per second were using Consul to facilitate 60-second cluster-wide configuration changes and make service discovery simpler and more flexible. Darron outlines mistakes made and lessons learned as well as some tips for successful implementation in your own environment.
