Pulumi is more than a way to build, deploy, and manage your infrastructure and cloud applications. Pulumi is also a strong and vibrant community. We are very excited to announce and showcase our new program of community champions, the Puluminaries!
At Pulumi, we’re incredibly fortunate to have over 70 integration partners in our ecosystem – helping shared end-users to build, deploy and manage practically any cloud service they can imagine. Our most popular content often includes workshops that show end-users how to use these powerful integrations. This year for PulumiUP, we’re excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with a number of partners to deliver a workshop track that provides hands-on labs and demonstrations for a variety of platforms and scenarios.
Creating a place for the Pulumi community to gather, ask questions, get help in real-time, and share successes has been an important part of the explosive growth we’ve seen in both users and customers. The Pulumi community slack has grown to over 7000 members and well over 200,000 messages.
Within those 200,000 messages are years of information kept behind a “walled garden” that is undiscoverable outside Slack’s search capabilities.
As enterprise adoption of the Pulumi Service has grown 350% over the last year, we’ve seen a strong customer demand for tools to manage automated Pulumi use cases such as CI/CD and Automation API at scale. Today we are launching Organization Access Tokens to empower our largest customers to manage automated workloads in a secure and collaborative manner.
What do assembly languages and the cloud have in common? Are abstractions the future of cloud computing? What does “infrastructure” really mean? And why do these questions matter to the platform engineers, infrastructure engineers, and developers who are building modern cloud applications today? Joe Duffy (Founder & CEO, Pulumi) and James Governor (Co-founder, RedMonk) recently answered these questions and more in a conversation about developer-first infrastructure. Developer-first infrastructure means empowering developers to build and deploy modern cloud applications and infrastructure through the use of software engineering practices that tame modern cloud complexity.
With the launch of Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) in 2017, it is now easier than ever to build, secure, operate and maintain Kubernetes clusters in the cloud. Notably, EKS removed the need to manage and configure underlying compute resources and scaling for clusters. Further, EKS Anywhere brings many benefits to hybrid and on-premises deployments.
These developments have proved to be a huge leap forward in productivity for teams that manage cloud infrastructure, enabling them to focus their efforts on deploying applications to meet the needs of customers and stakeholders.
The team has been busy releasing new features and improvements in the last month. The latest Pulumi updates include our providers updates, install Pulumi using winget, stack unselect command, GitHub release private plugins, and more. Read on to learn about what’s new in this release!
Managing containers and Kubernetes clusters are consistently popular topic areas on the Pulumi blog and in our docs. Our customers regularly cite that Pulumi simplifies container management scenarios, making it the primary reason for choosing Pulumi to define, deploy and manage all of their cloud resources. This includes teams that are just starting their cloud journey and spinning up their first project, as well as teams that want to modernize their apps and services with cloud-native architectures or even scale from one to many clouds.
Can’t make it to Valencia for KubeCon this year? Timezone doesn’t work for the virtual conference either? We can’t fix time, but if you’re feeling left out and still want some of that sweet cloud native content, you can still join us for KubeCrash, a new event hosting live crash courses and sessions on cloud native tech. Come hang out and learn directly from the maintainers of cloud native open source projects!
Since its introduction in 2014, the AWS Lambda service has steadily grown from ‘functions as a service’ to a powerful serverless platform that enables cloud engineers to run code without provisioning or managing underlying infrastructure.
