HashiCorp Consul provides the foundation of cloud networking automation using a central registry for service-based networking. Consul can discover services in any environment and register them for easy access via HTTP or DNS. VMware Tanzu Application Service (TAS) utilizes Consul’s DNS interface to enable applications to query services running outside of the platform.

Extend Service Discovery

Use this integration to enable applications running on TAS to discover services running in any external environment.

Centralized Service Registry

Combine TAS’s internal service discovery capabilities with Consul’s to maintain a single, centralized service registry.

Reduce Operational Overhead

Using Consul and TAS alleviates the challenge of tracking external service IPs manually and automates the discovery process.

How It Works

HashiCorp Consul enables applications running on Tanzu Application Service to extend their service discovery capability to include services that are running external to the platform. Organizations that have deployed services in hybrid environments, such as a mix of virtual machines and Kubernetes, can use Consul’s DNS interface to allow TAS applications to discover and register these services.

To accomplish this, users first log into Ops Manager and then add Consul’s DNS domain to the BOSH DNS Config. After deploying the new configuration, any service registered to Consul’s domain will be visible to TAS applications.
