Service discovery

The information on this page is written for Vamp v0.9.4

Vamp uses a service discovery pattern called server-side service discovery, which allows for service discovery without the need to change your code or run any other daemon or agent (microservices.io - server side discovery). In addition to service discovery, Vamp also functions as a service registry (microservices.io - service registry).

For Vamp, we recognise the following benefits of this pattern:

  • No code injection needed.
  • No extra libraries or agents needed.
  • platform/language agnostic: it’s just HTTP.
  • Easy integration using ENV variables.
