November 13th (Wednesday) \ Session 2 \ Main stage
At Criteo, we have been working on building a tight integration between HashiCorp Consul and HAProxy. In this talk, we will explain how we provision our HAProxy instances dynamically using Consul Connect, a new service mesh technology that allows HAProxy to talk to its peers from machine-to-machine without a traditional load balancer. We will detail how we are able to create a service with DNS, add load balancing, and configure SSL certificates in mere seconds. Since Criteo is working actively on enabling HAProxy with Consul Connect, we will explain the challenges of scaling Service Mesh architectures for large infrastructures.
