Announcing New Pulumi Open Source Projects for Kubernetes

Today, we’re excited to announce several new open source projects that advance Pulumi’s Kubernetes support. These projects and features have been developed while helping leading cloud native engineering teams like Snowflake, Lemonade, and Mercedes-Benz go into production with Kubernetes, and include new deployment automation options, improved ecosystem integrations, and tools to make it easier than ever to adopt Pulumi for new and existing projects.

Getting Started With Kubernetes: Day 2

Your application made it out of the dev stage, passed the testing stage, and arrived in production. As a developer, you might think that it’s an ops problem now. However, DevOps is a collaborative effort between developers and operators to build and maintain applications using shared techniques and processes, often called “Day 2” activities.

Rotating Secret Providers

Rotating Secret Providers

Customers and users have asked for the ability to change the secrets manager associated with their stacks. This would allow a user to rotate their secrets providers when people leave their organization or even to be able to migrate to another secret manager of their choice. The v2.8.0 release of Pulumi adds support for this specific feature. Let’s have a look at how to change a secrets provider for an existing stack:

Getting Started With Kubernetes: Networking

In previous installments, we examined how to deploy applications. However, we only touched on how applications talk to each other inside and outside the cluster. Whether you are building a modern application or modernizing a legacy application, understanding how resources and components talk to each other is essential. In this installment, we’ll examine networking in Kubernetes.

Getting Started with Kubernetes: Stateful Applications

This article is the fourth in a series using infrastructure as code to deploy applications with Kubernetes. This series walks you through:

In the previous post, we examined different methods for deploying applications. We worked through examples of a boilerplate deployment, to one using ComponentResources to automate deployment further, and deploying with Helm charts. In this installment, we’ll look at how to deploy stateful applications, such as databases, in Kubernetes. Unlike stateless applications, stateful apps require persistent storage, which presents scaling and availability challenges.

Build a Pulumi VS Code Devcontainer Environment

One of the major advantages of using containers for development is reducing the need to install software and associated dependencies. Developers can start writing code without configuring a development environment that emulates production. The Visual Studio Code Remote - Containers extension lets you develop inside a container. If you want to use Pulumi’s infrastructure as code engine without installing the Pulumi CLI, this blog post is for you!

Getting Started With Kubernetes: Advanced Deployment

Welcome to the third article in a series using infrastructure as code to deploy applications with Kubernetes. In the previous post, we reviewed basic Kubernetes objects and abstractions used when deploying an application. We examined code examples across the cloud providers to show how to use infrastructure as code to deploy an application using Kubernetes objects. In this installment, we’ll progress from a simple deployment with just a single application container to a complex application with multiple containers and Pods.

Announcing Kustomize Support

Kubernetes is complex, and there are many ways to manage Kubernetes resources. Pulumi supports many of these options, including native code SDKs, YAML, Helm, and now, Kustomize. There’s no need to rewrite your existing configurations to get started with Pulumi. You can efficiently adopt existing resources to deploy your modern application and save time and effort.

Getting Started With Kubernetes: Application Basics

Welcome to the second article in a series using infrastructure as code to deploy applications with Kubernetes. The series walks you through building a Kubernetes cluster on cloud providers, deploying applications, and “Day 2” activities such as migrating Node groups. In the previous article, we showed how to create a Kubernetes cluster for AWS, Azure, and GCP. In this installment, we’ll learn how to deploy an application using Kubernetes objects.
