Pulumi Kubernetes Operator 1.0

Pulumi Kubernetes Operator 1.0

Last year we released the Pulumi Kubernetes Operator, a new cloud-native way to manage and deploy cloud infrastructure using Pulumi from within your Kubernetes environment. Since then, we’ve worked with many Pulumi users who have adopted the Pulumi Kubernetes Operator at increasingly larger scales and for a wide variety of use cases. Today, we’re excited to make the 1.0 release of the Pulumi Kubernetes Operator available.

The Pulumi Kubernetes Operator defines a Kubernetes Custom Resource called pulumi.com/v1/Stack, which represents a Pulumi stack. The Pulumi stack can be authored in any supported Pulumi language (TypeScript, Python, Go, .NET) and can deploy and manage cloud infrastructure in any supported cloud (AWS, Azure, GCP, Kubernetes and 60+ additional cloud and SaaS providers). The Pulumi Kubernetes Operator triggers cloud deployments based on changes to the Stack Custom Resource or the resources it tracks.

As a result, the Pulumi Kubernetes Operator enables users to specify the desired state of their cloud infrastructure using resources managed directly in their Kubernetes cluster, which trigger creation, update and deletion of the detailed cloud infrastructure they need.

Announcing the Pulumi AWS Native Provider, Powered by the AWS Cloud Control API

Announcing the Pulumi AWS Native Provider, Powered by the AWS Cloud Control API

We are excited to announce the release of the new AWS Native provider for Pulumi, which is available today in preview. AWS is the most-used cloud provider across the Pulumi ecosystem, and with the new AWS Native provider, we are focused on delivering the best possible support for the AWS platform to all Pulumi users.

Pulumi Native Providers like AWS Native are a new type of Pulumi Package that give you the most complete and consistent interface for the modern cloud. Pulumi native providers bring the full power of the top cloud providers to the Pulumi Cloud Engineering Platform, with faster updates and more complete coverage than any other infrastructure as code offering.

The AWS Native provider offers same-day support for all new AWS features and releases covered by the newly released AWS Cloud Control API, which typically supports new AWS features on the day of launch. By building on the AWS Cloud Control API, the AWS Native provider offers a robust, reliable and well-defined resource model for AWS that’s available to Pulumi users in all Pulumi languages, including TypeScript, Python, Go and C#. By leveraging the AWS Cloud Control API, the AWS Native provider builds on the work done by service teams at AWS to define the resource model for their services. This ensures a rock solid provisioning lifecycle for resources deployed with the AWS Native provider.

Announcing Pulumi 3.0

Announcing Pulumi 3.0

Today we’re excited to announce the availability of Pulumi 3.0, the next major version of the Pulumi open source project, and the foundation for Pulumi’s Cloud Engineering Platform.

Pulumi offers the most complete infrastructure as code platform for building, deploying and managing modern cloud infrastructure and applications. Pulumi enables cloud engineers to use familiar languages to describe their cloud infrastructure - bringing core software engineering tools and practices to bear on managing and getting the maximum value from their cloud platforms of choice - across dozens of cloud and SaaS providers.

Pulumi 3.0 includes dozens of significant new features and hundreds of improvements that build on this foundation. This release includes more than 200 contributions from over 150 members of the Pulumi community, and builds on feedback from working with thousands of Pulumi users and customers over the last year.

Getting Started with Amazon EKS Distro & Pulumi

Getting Started with Amazon EKS Distro & Pulumi

As Kubernetes grows in popularity, the number of options for Kubernetes users continues to increase. Providers of managed Kubernetes offerings will often learn lessons about operating large numbers of clusters at scale; it’s increasingly common that they will contribute this knowledge back to the ecosystem, allowing those organizations who need more control and flexibility to reap the benefits.

With the announcement of the Amazon EKS Distro during AWS re:Invent, the Amazon EKS team has contributed back to the cloud-native community in a big way. In this post, we’ll take a brief look at what the Amazon EKS Distro is, explore why you might choose this over current managed service offerings and finally, explore how you can get started with the Amazon EKS Distro on day 1 using Pulumi.

Authoring CrossGuard Policy with Open Policy Agent (OPA)

Authoring CrossGuard Policy with Open Policy Agent (OPA)

We’re excited to announce the addition of Open Policy Agent (OPA) Rego language support to Pulumi’s CrossGuard policy-as-code framework. This enables Pulumi CrossGuard policy to be authored in either JavaScript/TypeScript/Python or in the popular Rego language using OPA.

Pulumi’s CrossGuard policy-as-code framework provides the ability to author, apply and enforce policy directly as part of your Pulumi deployments. With the new support for OPA Rego, CrossGuard supports a broad spectrum of policy authoring options, from expressive imperative languages to a popular industry-standard declarative policy language.

OPA-based rules for CrossGuard get all the core benefits of Pulumi’s policy-as-code framework - policies can be run on previews to get warnings about errors before you even deploy, policies can produce either advisory or mandatory recommendations allowing flexibility in flagging and enforcing policy violations, and policies can be applied and enforced across an entire organization through the Pulumi Service.

Announcing New Pulumi Open Source Projects for Kubernetes

Announcing New Pulumi Open Source Projects for Kubernetes

Today, we’re excited to announce several new open source projects that advance Pulumi’s Kubernetes support. These projects and features have been developed while helping leading cloud native engineering teams like Snowflake, Lemonade, and Mercedes-Benz go into production with Kubernetes, and include new deployment automation options, improved ecosystem integrations, and tools to make it easier than ever to adopt Pulumi for new and existing projects.

Using Amazon Elastic File System (EFS) with AWS Lambda

Using Amazon Elastic File System (EFS) with AWS Lambda

Ever since AWS Lambda was released in 2015, users have wanted persistent file storage beyond the small 512MB /tmp disk allocated to each Lambda function. The following year, Amazon launched EFS, offering a simple managed file system service for AWS, but initially only available to mount onto Amazon EC2 instances. Over the last few months, AWS has been extending access to EFS to all of the modern compute offerings. First EKS for Kubernetes, then ECS and Fargate for containers. Today, AWS announced that EFS is now also supported in Lambda, providing easy access to network file systems from your serverless functions.
