We founded Pulumi because of a deeply held belief that the cloud promises to change all aspects of software development and that there remains an incredible opportunity to reimagine the entire experience, from idea to creation to delivery to management, with one person in mind: you, the engineer.
Today we announced our partnership with GitHub on the new GitHub Actions feature. We are super excited about this bold and innovative technology, especially as it relates to Pulumi, and CI/CD more broadly. We truly believe that Pulumi plus GitHub Actions delivers the easiest, most capable, and friction-free way to achieve continuous delivery of cloud applications and infrastructure, no matter your cloud – AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, Kubernetes, or even on-premises. In this post, we’ll dig deeper to see why, and how to get up and running. It’s refreshingly easy!
In this post, we’ll take a look at 11 “pearls” – bite-sized code snippets – that demonstrate using Pulumi to build and deploy Kubernetes applications using cloud native infrastructure as code. These pearls are organized into three categories, each demonstrating a unique scenario:
- Config as Code: Use your favorite language for authoring applications and configuration, eliminating toil and YAML.
- Multi-Cloud Infrastructure: Mix cloud services alongside Kubernetes resources and manage them using one set of tools and workflows.
- Software Delivery as Code: Perform sophisticated continuous delivery of your Kubernetes deployments – including canaries, staged rollouts, leveraging cloud native projects like Envoy and Prometheus – authored in code using familiar languages.
Kubernetes has quickly become the “gold standard” for running containers in production, spanning public, private, and hybrid cloud scenarios. It’s been remarkable to watch its explosive growth just this past year alone. Every cloud vendor now supports an easy-to-use managed Kubernetes solution — Google GKE, Azure AKS, and AWS AKS — making it easier than ever to start writing and deploying Kubernetes applications.
Pulumi for Kubernetes is a way to create, deploy, and manage Kubernetes applications using your favorite programming languages. that works across AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, OpenStack, and other clouds, now to Kubernetes and cloud native architectures. You can dive right in here and look at some powerful things Pulumi enables here.
In this post, we’ll look at 12 “pearls” – bite-sized code snippets – that demonstrate some fun ways you can program the cloud using Pulumi. In my introductory post, I mentioned a few of my “favorite things”. Now let’s dive into a few specifics, from multi-cloud to cloud-specific, spanning containers, serverless, and infrastructure, and generally highlighting why using familiar languages is so empowering for cloud scenarios. Since Pulumi lets you do infrastructure-as-code from the lowest-level to the highest, we will cover a lot of interesting ground in short order.
Ahoy! Today we launched Pulumi, an open source cloud development platform, providing the cloud’s first true programming model using real programming languages. We believe that containers, serverless, and hosted cloud services change everything about how we design and build software and applications. All developers these days are cloud developers. We saw a big gap in the way people want to create this software, and how they are required to do it today with configuration YAML and templating languages, and sought to close that gap.
