Just a random opinion question... what do you guys feel like the advantages/disadvantages are of consul vs eureka?
I know a lot of it depends on the platform/container you're deploying to, but I just mean as a discovery service (even though consul is also a config service)

Eureka vs consul: Availability vs consistency, little security vs ACLs, heartbeat vs health check for a quick note.

If you're familiar with CAP, eureka is AP, consul leans towards CP. Eureka will serve you stale data rather than none.
