Service discovery at Stripe
Writeup of their Consul-based service discovery system, a bit similar to smartstack. Good description of the production problems that they saw with Consul too, and also they figured out that strong consistency isn't actually what you want in a service discovery system ;)

HN comments are good too: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=12840803
