Consul

Consul looks to me like an amazing solution to store configuration data. In huge cloud environments like what we are using nowadays, it is quite important to have a reliable source of parameters to our distributed applications, easily scalable and also, easy to change parameters spreading them efficiently over our entire environment.

Tanium

Tanium is suitable in any sort of organization where you want to look at your machines and what kind of applications they are running. One good example is removing an application from where it is not supposed to be in the organization. By using Tanium trace with basic English, first you can search all the machines which have that application, and second you can create a package either through a power shell command or CLI command and remove that application from all the machines at once.This is really saves lot of manual work, time, and also helps in balancing assets across an organization.

Pros

Consul

  • Service Health: Using Consul for service health/discovery has been critical to our success in a hybrid environment
  • K/V Store: The Consul K/V store is the best solution out there for our particular use case, which is as a locking mechanism to coordinate otherwise random runs of our configuration management system. This has allowed us to have peace of mind of system availability in our on-prem infrastructure.
  • API: The Consul API as a whole is excellent and extremely easy to work with
  • Documentation: Hashicorp really does documentation well. Their examples are easy to follow and everything is written in a manner that is easy to understand for beginners with the tool.

Tanium

  • Tanium helps in identifying a list of infected machines with any vulnerabilities. For example if we create a package with list of Windows vulnerabilities, it will push the package through its sensors to all the nodes, and trace out the infected machines in our organization.
  • It helps in adding IOC's which helps us in track down the hashes or shah files existing with that IOC 's machines.
  • The most impressive thing about Tanium is that it can quarantine the machine of our choice without connecting to the network, which really helps a lot of times in containment of any infected machines.

Cons

Consul

  • We would like to see more out of the box training for Consul use.
  • Best practice examples would be nice for routing.
  • The agent could be easier to run.

Tanium

  • One issue is its ring topology, as the data is stored in central hubs and pushed through its peer nodes. If the central hub fails, then the associated node will also result in failure.
  • Another problem is that all Tanium management is on premises requiring the customer to maintain it. If we want ask any help from Tanium support we always get a response like "you are maintaining it yourselves and it's your responsibility.
  • The Tanium User Interface could be improved a bit as, although the tool is rich in performance, a more impressive UI might really attract new customers.

Consul's API is extremely user friendly. While their web interface isn't quite as "mature", it's still pretty easily navigated for the average person. Together they make a pretty easy to pick up and use tool.

I've never used paid support from HashiCorp, but I consider its support a good one, since they provide a lot of free resources for the community and there are good user groups supporting you on several sorts of issues. Also, HashiCorp is known as a company with a strong relationship with the community, that is easily noticed by the events HashiCorp promotes over the world.

Alternatives Considered

Consul

We studied Zoekeeper, trying to decide which could become our service broker tool of choice. But although it is meant to be a very high performance tool, it got immensely shadowed by the vast plethora of available tools that Consul offers. The monitoring, health checking tools, as well as the key-value data storage and gossip clustering functionalities just could not be beaten

Tanium

Tanium is best for identifying infrastructure infections, and it is easy use where a user who has basic English knowledge can search his queries very easily. Tanium's exceptional feature is quarantining the machine from network, and this is a really impressive feature which should gain them new customers. Tanium helps in removing the suspicious application quickly, which saves time and manual work.
