»HCP Consul Overview

HCP Consul is a hosted version of Consul which is operated by HashiCorp. HCP Consul uses the same binary as self-hosted Consul, which means you will have a consistent user experience. You can use the same Consul clients to communicate with HCP Consul as you use to communicate with a self-hosted Consul.

The main difference is that we install, configure, and manage the Consul servers and therefor the cluster state for you. This means that all the steps you would normally use to create a Consul datacenter are replaced by the HCP UI/API/CLI.
