In software development, an anti-pattern is defined as an apparent solution that has unintended or negative consequences. The other side of anti-patterns is that they also offer solutions. Let’s look at container and Kubernetes anti-patterns and how to avoid them with infrastructure as code.
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.
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.
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.
In this blog post, we return to the PERN application we previously migrated to Kubernetes and replace the PostgreSQL database with MongoDB. Although it might seem like a difficult task initially, the straightforward design of Pulumi and Kubernetes allows us to easily transition the application form a PERN stack to a MERN one.
Hi everyone! I’m Albert, a soon-to-be sophomore studying computer science at the University of Washington. Today marks my last day as a Pulumi intern, so I figure I’d reflect on my experiences up until this point. Joining Pulumi I heard of Pulumi for the first time when they visited my school’s career fair in January. As I rounded the corner into the CSE1 atrium, I saw a banner titled “Modern Infrastructure as Code,” with some lines of TypeScript of what appeared to be the creation of an S3 bucket.
What is the cloud? Three months ago, that one word simply meant a bunch of water suspended in the atmosphere, but now it means more than that.
Hi, I’m Sashu Shankar, a second-year computer science student at the University of Washington, and this is my life as a Pulumi intern!
In this blog post, we will explore and demonstrate the advantages of Kubernetes by converting and deploying our PERN application to Amazon EKS. With the help of Pulumi, the process becomes greatly simplified and allows us to focus more on the big picture of designing our cloud architecture.
In our previous post, we deployed our CMS app on AWS instead of Netlify. We couldn’t use Netlify’s Identity Service, which manages GitHub access to Netlify CMS, because we deployed on AWS. As a result, we needed to implement an external OAuth Server.
We used Netlify’s Go example to deploy on ECS Fargate and configure the domain and certificate. To deploy the application on Fargate, we used a Typescript Pulumi project. This is a polyglot application where the OAuth server is implemented in Go and the infrastructure is deployed with Typescript. We’ll show how we accomplished the deployment.
In this blog post, we will explore PERN stack applications and deploy one to AWS. PERN is an acronym for PostgreSQL, Express, React, and Node. A PERN stack application is a project that uses PostgreSQL, Express as an application framework, React as a user interface framework, and runs on Node. We will also use Pulumi Crosswalk to reduce the amount of code and provide a quick and straightforward path for deploying the application.
