Consul is used in my company by my team to store key-value securely. We generate the property file externally and bind it in the docker container.

"Wonderful Dev and Ops experience."

What do you like best?

Easy to use, setup, implement and manage. The admin UI has a great user experience and does exactly what it says on the tin.

What do you dislike?

A lot of popular container orchestration software lacks support for Consul, opting for Zookeeper or etcd instead.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Evaluate how Consul will interact with everything else in your stack.

Will you use the DNS interface, or the HTTP one? Ensure you run a good cluster, preferably 1 consul instance on every (virtual) machine if possible.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Service discovery and distributed configuration.

"Great for service discovery and K-V store "

What do you like best?

Love that service discovery is pretty easy to set up using consul. We can easily externalize application properties through a consul agent. This provides for secure storage of property key values and the best part is we don't even have to restart the application if we change the properties

What do you dislike?

None. Keep building features that we love!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Application discovery and properties externalization
