Architecture as Code

Abstraction is key to building resilient systems because it encapsulates behavior and decouples code, letting each component perform its function independently. The same principles apply to infrastructure, where we want to declare behavior or state and not implementation details. As an industry, we’ve moved away from monolithic applications to distributed systems such as serverless, microservices, Kubernetes, and virtual machine deployments. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at the characteristics of these architectures and how Pulumi can abstract the components that comprise these systems.

Modern Cloud Infrastructure in Go - The Road to 2.0

Here at Pulumi, everyone on our engineering team is a Gopher. Go has quickly become the “language of the cloud,” and so when we chose to build our open-source pulumi/pulumi engine and SaaS backend, we chose Go. As such, we are very excited to welcome Go to the family of supported infrastructure as code languages as part of Pulumi 2.0. What is Pulumi? Go has become the lingua franca of cloud-native infrastructure development.

Scheduling Serverless

Scheduling events has long been an essential part of automation; many tasks need to run at specific times or intervals. You could be checking StackOverflow for new questions every 20 minutes or compiling a report that is emailed every other Friday at 4:00 pm. Today, many of these tasks can be efficiently accomplished in the cloud. While each cloud has its flavor of scheduled functions, this post steps you through an example using AWS CloudWatch with the help of Pulumi.
