Modern Cloud Infrastructure in Go - The Road to 2.0

Modern Cloud Infrastructure in Go - The Road to 2.0

Here at Pulumi, everyone on our engineering team is a Gopher. Go has quickly become the “language of the cloud,” and so when we chose to build our open-source pulumi/pulumi engine and SaaS backend, we chose Go. As such, we are very excited to welcome Go to the family of supported infrastructure as code languages as part of Pulumi 2.0. What is Pulumi? Go has become the lingua franca of cloud-native infrastructure development.

Manage Any Infrastructure with Policy as Code

Manage Any Infrastructure with Policy as Code

In an earlier article, we introduced examples of Policy as Code to prevent two of the most common causes of data breaches. Policies are the guardrails of infrastructure. They control access, set limits, and manage how infrastructure operates. In many systems, policies are created by clicking on a GUI, making it difficult to replicate or version. Pulumi implements policy by writing it in Typescript, which ensures that you can write policies using software development practices such as automated testing, deployment, and version control.

Google Cloud Run: Serverless Containers

Google Cloud Run: Serverless Containers

Google Cloud Run is the latest addition to the serverless compute family. While it may look similar to existing services of public cloud, the feature set makes Cloud Run unique: Docker as a deployment package enables using any language, runtime, framework, or library that can respond to an HTTP request. Automatic scaling, including scale to zero, means you pay for what you consume with no fixed cost and no management overhead.

Inside Crosswalk for Kubernetes

Inside Crosswalk for Kubernetes

Running Kubernetes in production can be challenging. This past year, Pulumi has collected common patterns of usage informed by best practices for provisioning Kubernetes infrastructure and running containerized applications. We call this Pulumi Crosswalk for Kubernetes: a collection of playbooks and libraries to help you to successfully configure, deploy, and manage Kubernetes in a way that works for teams in production. Kubernetes is Vast and Complex Kubernetes is the standard multi-cloud platform for modern containerized applications.

Simple Serverless programming with Google Cloud Functions

Pulumi lets you create, deploy, and manage Google Cloud applications and infrastructure in familiar languages like JavaScript, TypeScript, and Python, and without needing to learn new DSLs or YAML templating solutions. This means great productivity and getting to use tools you already know and love. Since serverless is all about focusing more on your application code, and less on infrastructure and configuration toil, we absolutely love Google Functions.
