Managing Configuration in a Distributed System
Managing configuration in a distributed system can be a complex task. As the number of nodes in a system grows, it becomes increasingly difficult to keep track of all the configurations and ensure that they are consistent across all nodes. Consul is a tool that can help with this task by providing a centralized configuration management system that is distributed and highly available.
What Is Consul?
Consul is a tool that provides a distributed key-value store, service discovery, and health checking. It can be used to manage configuration data for a distributed system and ensure that the data is consistent across all nodes. Consul uses a gossip protocol to ensure that updates to the configuration data are quickly propagated to all nodes in the system.
