Building on top of the cloud can be frustrating at times. You will likely run into resources that complicated to create, others that are very tedious to create, and worst of all resources that are complicated and tedious to create. As cloud engineers ourselves, we feel the same pain as our users and strive to build abstractions that make cloud engineering a more productive and pleasant experience. Recently we released our Community AWS IAM Package to help deliver on the promise of making the cloud easier to use for every operator, engineer, and user.
Creating a website on AWS with an S3 bucket is a fairly straightforward task. You just need to create an S3 bucket, configure it to be a website, and add your content, right? Unfortunately getting your content into a bucket is only a part of the story. To get your website ready to handle traffic, you will want to associate a domain name and likely want to use a CDN, like Cloudfront, to help with performance.
I love data. I mean, I really love data. Data gives you the ability to understand the world around you and, to a certain degree, project what the future could look like. At Pulumi we use data every day to help make smarter product and business decisions. Though one hurdle we encountered was not only the sheer volume of data we have but also the large disparity of systems storing that data.
Earth is just the beginning. We are putting down the foundations of space so our children can build their future. At Pulumi, we are committed to making life multi-planetary. We are excited to announce Pulumi Interstellar, a collection of resource providers that will help us reach the future of a space-faring and multi-planet species.
