re:Invent 2020 EKS Feature Releases

re:Invent 2020 EKS Feature Releases

Amazon announced several Elastic Kubernetes Service feature releases and updates during the first week of AWS re:Invent 2020. If we look at all the announcements as a whole, we can see the Kubernetes ecosystem maturing to make deployments and management easier for organizations. Let’s take a look at how they can benefit your use of EKS.

Getting Started with Amazon EKS Distro & Pulumi

Getting Started with Amazon EKS Distro & Pulumi

As Kubernetes grows in popularity, the number of options for Kubernetes users continues to increase. Providers of managed Kubernetes offerings will often learn lessons about operating large numbers of clusters at scale; it’s increasingly common that they will contribute this knowledge back to the ecosystem, allowing those organizations who need more control and flexibility to reap the benefits.

With the announcement of the Amazon EKS Distro during AWS re:Invent, the Amazon EKS team has contributed back to the cloud-native community in a big way. In this post, we’ll take a brief look at what the Amazon EKS Distro is, explore why you might choose this over current managed service offerings and finally, explore how you can get started with the Amazon EKS Distro on day 1 using Pulumi.

Running Container Images in AWS Lambda

Running Container Images in AWS Lambda

When AWS Lambda launched in 2014, it pioneered the concept of Function-as-a-Service. Developers could write a function in one of the supported programming languages, upload it to AWS, and Lambda executes the function on every invocation.

Ever since then, a zip archive of application code or binaries has been the only supported deployment option. Even AWS Lambda Layers—reusable components automatically merged into the application code—used the zip packaging format.

Today, AWS announced that AWS Lambda now supports packaging serverless functions as container images. This means that you can deploy a custom Docker or OCI image as an AWS Lambda function.

Pulumi container images now available on Amazon ECR Public

Pulumi container images now available on Amazon ECR Public

At re:Invent, the AWS team unveiled the new Amazon Elastic Container Registry Public (Amazon ECR Public), creating a new option for users in publishing and pulling public container images. Pulumi fully supports Amazon ECR Public in two ways:

  1. Official Pulumi container images are available today on Amazon ECR Public.
  2. Pulumi is the easiest way to package and publish your container images, and we’ll support publishing your container images to Amazon ECR Public very soon.

Migrating a cloud application to Kubernetes

Migrating a cloud application to Kubernetes

In this blog post, we will explore and demonstrate the advantages of Kubernetes by converting and deploying our PERN application to Amazon EKS. With the help of Pulumi, the process becomes greatly simplified and allows us to focus more on the big picture of designing our cloud architecture.

Deploying an OAuth Server for Netlify's CMS

Deploying an OAuth Server for Netlify's CMS

In our previous post, we deployed our CMS app on AWS instead of Netlify. We couldn’t use Netlify’s Identity Service, which manages GitHub access to Netlify CMS, because we deployed on AWS. As a result, we needed to implement an external OAuth Server.

We used Netlify’s Go example to deploy on ECS Fargate and configure the domain and certificate. To deploy the application on Fargate, we used a Typescript Pulumi project. This is a polyglot application where the OAuth server is implemented in Go and the infrastructure is deployed with Typescript. We’ll show how we accomplished the deployment.

Deploying a PERN stack application to AWS

Deploying a PERN stack application to AWS

In this blog post, we will explore PERN stack applications and deploy one to AWS. PERN is an acronym for PostgreSQL, Express, React, and Node. A PERN stack application is a project that uses PostgreSQL, Express as an application framework, React as a user interface framework, and runs on Node. We will also use Pulumi Crosswalk to reduce the amount of code and provide a quick and straightforward path for deploying the application.

Deploying Netlify CMS on AWS with Pulumi

Deploying Netlify CMS on AWS with Pulumi

Netlify CMS is an open-source content management system that provides UI for editing content and adopting Git workflow. Initially, we want to take advantage of it to increase efficiency to edit Pulumi’s website. However, during development, we found few examples are deploying the CMS application on AWS instead of Netlify, its home platform. Therefore, in this blog post, we would like to share how to organize Netlify’s file structure and use Pulumi to store the content on S3 buckets, connect to CloudFront, and configure certificate in Certificate Manager.
