In 2024, several trends will dominate cloud computing, driving innovation, efficiency, and scalability. From Infrastructure as Code (IaC) to AI/ML, platform engineering to multi-cloud and hybrid strategies, and security practices, let’s explore the 10 biggest emerging trends.
Pulumi Cloud pricing is straightforward- a charge per resource hour for every resource managed by Pulumi Cloud and a charge for every deployment minute (only applicable if using Pulumi Deployments). However, when prospective customers first look at Pulumi Cloud costs it can be overwhelming to determine what your workload will look like and then do the math.
Today we are making available a simple tool for estimating your cost on the Team Edition of Pulumi Cloud to get prospective customers to the information as quickly as possible.
As part of our ongoing commitment to providing developers and infrastructure teams with powerful tools, we’re thrilled to introduce the latest enhancement to Pulumi Cloud’s stack update pages. We have shipped an improvement to Pulumi Cloud stack update pages where all update pages now show the resources in the stack at that time and the stack outputs going back since your first update on the stack.
As a team building a distributed cloud service that will be used by different people around the world, you will need strategies to cater to users globally, ensuring uninterrupted service even in the face of disruptions. Have you ever wondered how businesses operate and deliver high-level performance across different regions? Well, that is the result of scaling applications across multiple regions — in a bid to ensure constant access and flexibility, organizations distribute their applications and databases across various geographic regions so that if one part faces issues, the service remains available elsewhere.
At AWS re:Invent 2023, AWS announced the new Amazon S3 Express One Zone storage class. This new service provides incredible performance by collocating your S3 buckets closer to the workloads that use the data. Compared to the S3 Standard storage class, the Express One Zone storage class is up to 10X faster, handles 100,000s of requests per second, offers single-digit millisecond latency, and can reduce request costs by 50%. This can be extremely beneficial for data-intensive workloads such as AI/ML, media, finance, realtime, and high-performance computing scenarios. This blog post shows how to get started with Amazon S3 Express One Zone using Pulumi infrastructure as code.
We are excited to announce that all users of Pulumi Cloud can now secure their account with multi-factor authentication (MFA). By requiring an additional verification step during the login process, MFA shields against unauthorized access, reducing the risk of breaches. This feature aligns with our commitment to providing robust security measures for our users. As an organization administrator, you can further protect your organization by having your members enable MFA.
Redis Enterprise Cloud makes apps faster by providing an in-memory database that enables teams to create a real-time data platform. In this post, you’ll learn how to enable connectivity between Redis Enterprise Cloud and your workloads using Pulumi and the Redis Cloud provider.
Keeping long-lived kubeconfig around on disk is insecure and error-prone. You need a secure workflow that removes tedium. With Pulumi and ESC, we provide an automated workflow that generates a kubeconfig on-the-fly for every command using short-term credentials issued via OIDC. This makes it easy for your team to connect to a given Kubernetes environment, and it works well with Kubernetes tools such as kubectl and the Pulumi Kubernetes provider. Let’s take a look.
This is the third of a three-part series originally published on The New Stack. Read Part 1 and Part 2. Engineers who modernize their Infrastructure as Code with Pulumi get two classes of benefits: Infrastructure as Code to develop cloud infrastructure with code. Pulumi Cloud, which tames cloud infrastructure management at scale. We’ve covered a fair bit of the first above, but have yet to scratch the surface for the second.
This is the second of a three-part series originally published on The New Stack. Following the first piece in this series, Infrastructure as Code in Any Programming Language, this walkthrough will show what it takes to get up and running with Infrastructure as Code. Everything we show will be done with Pulumi’s free and open source Infrastructure as Code SDK. You can also sign up for Pulumi Cloud. After discussing the basics of how to get going, we’ll then dive into some advanced use cases to show what you can do from there.
