Introducing Pulumi, a Cloud Development Platform

Posted on


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.

Pulumi brings all the things we know and love with programming languages – IDEs, abstraction, encapsulation, sharing and reuse, and more – to the creation of all aspects of cloud programs and applications, while retaining the full power of immutable infrastructure across Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP), as well as Kubernetes running in any public, private, or hybrid cloud.  An open ecosystem of packages promises to eliminate copy-and-paste, and encourage sharing of best practices within teams and the community.

We started on Pulumi a little over a year ago, have built an incredible team, and I’m thrilled to announce its availability.  Download or learn more about this unique cloud development platform here, or read more background on Pulumi’s motivation and world-view over on my personal blog.

The team can’t wait to see all the incredible things you will build using Pulumi.
