Multi-datacenter container orchestration with Nomad and Consul
Nomad is a distributed, multi-datacenter scheduler for containers, virtual machines and more. It’s a tool from Hashicorp, the company that also brings us Consul, a service-discovery tool that allows you to register and discover services. With the latest big release of Nomad (version 0.4), integration with Consul is improved which promises to significantly simplify the creation of a (multi-datacenter) Nomad cluster. You can read more about this release on Hashicorp’s blog.
