    Nomad is an easy-to-use, flexible, and performant workload orchestrator that can deploy a mix of microservice, batch, containerized, and non-containerized applications. Nomad is easy to operate and scale and has native Consul and Vault integrations.

    Lob’s core API has been fully migrated to HashiCorp's Nomad, Lob’s Next Generation service platform. This is a major milestone for the Nomad Project, the Platform Team, and Lob Engineering. This migration is the culmination of a year of R&D, months of practice migrating other Lob services, and weeks of work on this particular service. It’s absolutely worth celebrating for the complexity and customer impact.

  • consul-template

    Template rendering, notifier, and supervisor for @HashiCorp Consul and Vault data.

    It was clear back in 2021 that Lob needed to consolidate how we run code and none of our current tools were up to the task; it wasn’t a matter of if Lob would upgrade to something new, but when. The Platform team kicked off a research project to find Lob’s next service platform. Forever ago (back in 2019) we investigated migrating to Kubernetes, a popular but notoriously difficult-to-manage tool for this sort of thing, but that project fizzled out for many reasons, forcing us to consider something else. We chose Nomad which offers a comparable feature set to Kubernetes in a much more streamlined package. Nomad is developed by HashiCorp, a leader in the DevOps space, and is used by companies like Pandora, Cloudflare, Internet Archive, and Roblox.
