:> It's a good question and there have actually been some discussions about leveraging it on the backend. However, even if we did, we'd still need keystone to provide the multi-tenancy view on the subject. consul wasn't designed (quite correctly I think) to be a user-facing service for 50k users.

:Thanks, that makes sense.  I agree that it might be a good backend but not the overall solution... I was bringing it up to ensure we consider existing options (where possible) and spend cycles on the unsolved bits.

As an operator I'd be happy to use SRV records to define endpoints,
though multiple regions could make that messy.

would we make subdomins per region or include region name in the
service name? 


Also not all operators can controll their DNS to this level so it
couldn't be the only option.

Or are you talking about using an internal DNS implementation private
to the OpenStack Deployment?  I'm actually a bit less happy with that
