Pulumi Watch Mode: Fast Inner Loop Development for Cloud Infrastructure

Pulumi Watch Mode: Fast Inner Loop Development for Cloud Infrastructure

A big part of our vision with Pulumi is to bring application developers and infrastructure teams closer together in the cloud. That includes both providing infrastructure teams with better software engineering tools, as well as providing developers with easier access to cloud infrastructure. We are often inspired by looking at great software engineering experiences in other development stacks and applying them to the cloud infrastructure space. Whether it be general-purpose languages and rich IDEs, testing and package management, or components and rich APIs, at Pulumi, we’ve repeatedly applied successful development tools and practices to the challenges of building and scaling modern cloud infrastructure.

Create Secure Jupyter Notebooks on Kubernetes using Pulumi

Create Secure Jupyter Notebooks on Kubernetes using Pulumi

In this post, we will work through an example that shows how to use Pulumi to create Jupyter Notebooks on Kubernetes. Having worked on Kubernetes since 2015, a couple of critical benefits jump out that may resonate with you as well:

  • You write everything in code - TypeScript in our example here.
  • You need not initialize Tiller or Helm to work with existing Helm charts like nginx-ingress-controller that we use here.
  • The security patterns in Helm and Tiller are no longer concerns, rather you get to focus on the RBAC of the actual service which is Jupyter-notebook in this example.
  • You accomplish more with less YAML and iteratively work towards your use cases.

Managing your MySQL databases with Pulumi

Managing your MySQL databases with Pulumi

One of the most critical components of an application’s infrastructure is its database, and one of the most popular databases in use in the cloud today is MySQL.

Pulumi can already be used to create managed MySQL instances in a wide variety of clouds, including AWS, Azure and GCP. In addition to this, Pulumi recently added support for managing the MySQL instances themselves to manage permissions, create databases, and other common tasks.

In this post, we’ll walk through a quick tutorial of how to use this new Pulumi MySQL provider to manage existing and new MySQL databases.
