Pulumi Docker Provider 4.0: Build Images Up To 50x Faster

Pulumi Docker Provider 4.0: Build Images Up To 50x Faster

The Pulumi Docker Provider has been a top Pulumi provider since it launched in 2018. It can be used to provision any of the resources available in Docker, including containers, images, networks, volumes and more.

One of the most heavily used features of this provider is the docker.Image resource, which enables Pulumi users to build and (optionally) push a local Docker context (like an application folder) to a registry as part of a Pulumi deployment. Today we are excited to announce a set of improvements to the docker.Image resource driven by the feedback we have received from our community. This set of improvements includes:

  • Significantly improved performance (including reduced need for rebuilds)
  • BuildKit support (including cross-platform builds)
  • Rich Docker build logs inside Pulumi IaC program output
  • Pulumi YAML and Pulumi Java support

We heard from customers that they love this feature but found it both hard to discover and tedious when moving a large workload from one organization to another and from Individual accounts to organizations. We are excited to announce bulk stack transfer to address this feedback and a new organization set up wizard to improve discovery of the feature.

Pulumi CLI now displays time elapsed per resource

If you’ve deployed resources to your favorite cloud provider, you have probably found yourself sitting in the console thinking: “I don’t know how long this is going to take.” Then you deploy the resource and think: “When did I even start this?” When using Pulumi, the CLI prints out how long the update took after it ran, but while you’re in the moment, it feels like ages.
