etcd is a configuration management tool applying the RAFT consensus algorithm. As you scale, different members are added your environments that require their own configuration. etcd helps you thread together these members, easing the burden of distributed configuration file management. The name comes from the idea of distributing the Unix "/etc" directory, where many configuration files live, across multiple machines – /etc-distributed.
