Pulumi YAML: A Simple Declarative Interface for Pulumi

Pulumi YAML: A Simple Declarative Interface for Pulumi

Since we first launched Pulumi 4 years ago, a core point of differentiation between Pulumi and other Infrastructure as Code offerings has been the ability to use popular general purpose programming languages - and their rich software engineering ecosystems - in order to scale up the complexity and richness of cloud infrastructure workloads. This approach has enabled cloud builders to adopt and embrace modern Infrastructure as Code with Pulumi using a wide variety of languages, including TypeScript, Python, Go, C# and Java.

Our goal though has always been to offer the broadest range of programming language options to empower every cloud builder so that they could benefit from the best of Pulumi’s Infrastructure as Code platform.

Today, we are excited to launch Pulumi YAML, a simple YAML-based interface to the entirety of the Pulumi Infrastructure as Code platform.

Crosswalk for AWS in all Pulumi Languages

Crosswalk for AWS is a collection of libraries that make it easy to work with AWS using Pulumi Infrastructure as Code. The Crosswalk for AWS libraries are some of the most widely used higher-level components in the Pulumi ecosystem, with hundreds of organizations building their infrastructure on the simple abstractions over key AWS services like ECS, API Gateway, VPC, Load Balancing, CloudTrail, EC2, ECR, and more.

Introducing AWS CDK on Pulumi

One of our key goals with Pulumi’s Universal Infrastructure as Code platform is to offer access to the widest range of cloud infrastructure building blocks for use within your cloud engineering projects. Over the years, that has led us to support interoperating seamlessly with a variety of alternative infrastructure definition formats, like Helm, CloudFormation, Azure Resource Manager and Kubernetes YAML. Today we’re really excited to add support for AWS CDK constructs to the list!

Announcing the Pulumi Service Provider

Announcing the Pulumi Service Provider

One of the advantages of having a large and vocal community like we have, is the quantity and quality of product feedback we receive. This was highlighted by a GitHub issue submitted by a community member for a Pulumi Service Provider: It’s a bit funny that a service that is all about configuration as code can’t be configured with code. The rest of the community agreed too, as this is one of our top customer product requests.

All Roads Lead Back to Infrastructure as Code

All Roads Lead Back to Infrastructure as Code

Our mission with Pulumi was to make it 100x easier to program the cloud. We saw amazing new architectures and capabilities made possible by the modern cloud, and new and exciting software and business outcomes fueled by adopting them. And yet, back in 2017 when we began, we found the models for programming, composing, and building modern cloud software sorely lacking. “Infrastructure as code” is widely accepted as the table stakes solution, yet most people were copy-and-pasting config scripts in bash, encoding architecture in thousands of lines of YAML, and the best in class technologies used proprietary domain-specific languages that lacked great IDEs and true sharing and reuse, and were simply reinventing the wheel.

Announcing Pulumi Community Slack Archive

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.

Today we’re announcing that our community slack is now publicly available via https://archive.pulumi.com thanks to Linen
