Consul is a well-known and widely used service discovery mechanism. Wish has standardized on using Consul for quite some time. And although Kubernetes has a built-in service discovery mechanism, Wish wants to continue to use Consul as its primary service discovery mechanism. Thomas Jackson explains how Wish is leveraging Kubernetes and integrating it with its infrastructure.
