At Pulumi, we work with organizations that range from a few platform team members to entire departments for managing infrastructure. Many organizations, like Mercedes-Benz, have built internal developer platforms on top of Pulumi to enable developers to self-serve infrastructure templates, and partners like AWS Proton and Port have built integrations with Pulumi to enable self-service scenarios. We are thrilled to have announced yesterday the launch of our new suite of tools to build internal developer portals with Pulumi, a result of working directly with our customers to understand their problems and how Pulumi can solve it.
Over the last two years, we’ve seen a huge surge in adoption of Pulumi by Platform Teams – centralized teams within a business responsible for building out core cloud infrastructure and providing tools to the rest of the organization to maximize the productivity, cost efficacy, compliance and velocity of application and service delivery throughout the organization. These teams use Pulumi to manage their own cloud infrastructure complexity, to offer best practices components to their organizations, to enforce organizational policy, and to drive infrastructure delivery automation.
Backstage is an open source framework for building developer portals, created at Spotify and donated to the CNCF. It allows engineers to create their own development portal internally. Backstage makes it easy for teams to create a unified portal for their infrastructure tooling, software templates, services, documentation and plugins for external tools.
