Discover a centralized approach to monitor your virtual infrastructure, on-premise IT environment, and cloud infrastructure – all on a single platform.

Historically it is difficult to store and configure secrets within applications. In the new age of microservices, it is also a challenge to register instances for discovery. Fortunately, Consul and Vault make securing secrets a breeze. Consul’s Service Registration mechanism makes easy work of service discovery. When combined with Spring Boot’s auto configuration we can leverage Consul and Vault by simply updating our classpath.

In this session, we will discuss how to integrate Spring Boot applications with Consul and Vault for service discovery, configuration, secrets, event bus, and more. We will show how Spring implements various APIs using Consul and Vault, including Spring Cloud Discovery, Spring Environment, and Spring Cloud Stream.
