Traefik Labs' Traefik Proxy Integrates with HashiCorp's Consul Connect
August 11, 2021

Traefik Labs announced a formalized partnership with HashiCorp.

Traefik Proxy, version 2.5 will natively connect with HashiCorp’s Consul, a multi-platform service mesh that creates a consistent platform for modern application networking, observability, and security.

Building upon the existing integration with the Consul service mesh, native support for the Consul Connect API means that Traefik Proxy 2.5 is now fully Consul-aware. As such, peer certificates and ServersTransport objects are now first-class citizens in Traefik. This negates the need to manually export service mTLS certificates or update configuration when your service topology changes. Communicating directly via Consul Connect means higher performance for your applications which can now access the full bandwidth of your network without the overhead of any translation proxies.

In addition to Consul and Consult Connect, Traefik also integrates with the following Hashicorp products:

- Nomad: Traefik offers support for Nomad by leveraging the service information published by Nomad to Consul’s service catalog to dynamically reconfigure its routing.

- Vault: Traefik Enterprise supports Vault as a key-value store for certificate management and can enlist Vault as a certificate resolver, allowing it to dynamically generate certificates on the fly.

The upcoming release of Traefik Proxy v2.5 also introduces other exciting new features including HTTP3 support, Kubernetes Ingress v1.22+ compatibility, and router metrics.
