Testing Your Infrastructure as Code with Pulumi

Using Pulumi and general purpose languages for infrastructure as code comes with many benefits: leveraging existing skills and knowledge, eliminating boilerplate through abstraction, and using the same ecosystem of tools like IDEs and linters that your team already knows and loves. In general, these are all attributes of software engineering, which not only make us more productive, but also improve the quality of our code. It’s only natural, therefore, that using general purpose languages unlocks another important software engineering practice: testing.

The Kubernetes landscape is constantly evolving as end users and developers search for the right tools, approaches, and abstractions to help them manage Cloud Native infrastructure in production.

Last week Heptio (now part of VMWare) announced that work on ksonnet, a project launched by Heptio, Box, Microsoft, and Bitnami, will stop. We’re sad to see ksonnet winding down, but are thankful for the collaborative exchange of ideas between projects, and are excited to see continued investment in VMWare/Heptio’s other projects. The good news is that, if you liked ksonnet, we’re confident that you’ll love Pulumi. In this post, we’ll tell you why.
