The a9s Consul DNS for PCF tile provides a highly available DNS service including a Consul cluster as well as additional Dnsmasq servers for service discovery and service failover procedures.

Consul is a highly available (HA) service discovery and configuration tool, which includes features such as failure detection, an HA key/value store, and an HA DNS service that you can control through a HTTP-based REST interface.

This service is used and required by the a9s DataService tiles for PCF, such as a9s Elasticsearch for PCF, a9s MongoDB for PCF, or a9s PostgreSQL for PCF, to advertise its service instances and service broker to the Pivotal Elastic Runtime.
