Pulumi raises Series B to build the future of Cloud Engineering

Today I’m thrilled to announce that we’ve raised $37.5 million in Series B funding led by NEA with participation from existing investors, Madrona Venture Group and Tola Capital. We will use this funding to continue serving our fast-growing community of developers and infrastructure practitioners, making Cloud Engineering the new reality for organizations embracing the modern cloud in all aspects of how they ship software.

Policy as Code for Any Cloud Provider

Sophia Parafina Sophia Parafina βˆ™
Policy as Code for Any Cloud Provider

Policies protect your infrastructure by controlling access, set limits that reduce the blast radius of an incident, and manage infrastructure operations. Policies are commonly created through a form on a cloud provider’s administrative console, making replicating or versioning the policy more difficult. With Policy as Code, you can apply software engineering practices such as automated testing, deployment, and version control when creating policies.

CrossGuard is Pulumi’s Policy as Code solution that lets you create, verify, apply, and enforce policies. Policies are standalone packages that can be run against any Pulumi stack. That means your policies are language agnostic and work with any language supported by Pulumi. Policy Packages are policy bundles that evaluate every resource in your stack, whether deployed in AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, or Kubernetes.

Cloud Engineering Summit Reloaded

Putting on a new event is always risky, especially when the calendar is saturated with virtual conferences. Our goal for the Cloud Engineering Summit was to bring the level of conversation above specific technologies and take a holistic look into the future of the cloud and you knocked it out of the park! Here are the stats:

  • 46 industry leaders
  • 17 hours of content
  • 3000+ participants

The Pulumi Automation API - The Next Quantum Leap in IaC

The Pulumi Automation API - The Next Quantum Leap in IaC

Today’s Infrastructure as Code platforms let organizations build rich, reliable, and complex cloud-based applications and architectures. But as teams move to modern cloud technologies, they continue to search for ways to drive increased software-driven automation. Although modern Infrastructure as Code tools bring key software engineering benefits to cloud engineering, they remain focused on human-driven workflows. For example, a person running pulumi up at their terminal or wiring the Pulumi CLI into their CI/CD system.

To scale up how we deploy and manage cloud infrastructure and ultimately unlock the cloud’s value and agility, we believe it will be critical to build software systems around our Infrastructure as Code platforms - systems that scale with software, not just humans.

The Past, Present, and Future of Cloud Engineering

The Past, Present, and Future of Cloud Engineering

All software is cloud software. All modern applications interact with the cloud in some way, whether it’s using cloud for storage, compute capabilities, or with rich cloud services for data, AI/ML, and so much more, to deliver amazing new experiences. As a result, all developers today are cloud developers, and infrastructure teams are key to enabling innovation across the entire organization. I had a great time telling this story at the Cloud Engineering Summit today and wanted to take a moment to put pen to paper.

Credijusto Manages Authentication with Auth0 and Pulumi

Guest author Lead Devops Engineer Fernando Carletti, writes about using the Pulumi Auth0 provider to manage resources at Credijusto.

Auth0 allows you to simplify your authentication process. The Auth0 Provider allows you to manage the Auth0 resources, managing Applications, Databases, Social Connections, APIs, and other resources. Here at Credijusto we use it manage authentication from the front-end through all the APIs that serve that request, leveraging the complexity of the authentication to Auth0.

For this article, we will start a new Pulumi project in a fresh Auth0 account and fully configure it for a backend and a single page application and set up a connection to Github which allows you apps to authenticate with it using OAuth.

Announcing Next Generation Pulumi Azure Provider

Announcing Next Generation Pulumi Azure Provider

We are excited to announce the beta release of a next generation Microsoft Azure provider for Pulumi. Azure has been a rapidly growing cloud platform among Pulumi users over the last year, and with the next generation Azure provider, we are doubling down on providing the best support possible for the Azure platform in Pulumi. We designed the new provider to expose the entire API surface of Azure to developers and operators, now and forever.

The new Azure provider for Pulumi (azure-nextgen) works directly with the Azure Resource Manager (ARM) platform instead of depending on a handwritten layer as with the previous provider. This approach ensures higher quality and higher fidelity with the Azure platform.

Zephyr's Summer Intern Experience with Pulumi

Hi, I am Zephyr Zhou, a senior Computer Science student at the University of Washington. I spent this past summer interning at Pulumi. This is my first internship ever in my life. Thanks to Pulumi for providing this opportunity even in this difficult time of the Covid-19 epidemic. Despite the sad truth that I couldn’t get in touch offline, I believe this will be one of my most precious memories.

Time goes by so fast, but before saying goodbye to my internship, I would like to share the story.
