Last year we released the Pulumi Kubernetes Operator, a new cloud-native way to manage and deploy cloud infrastructure using Pulumi from within your Kubernetes environment. Since then, we’ve worked with many Pulumi users who have adopted the Pulumi Kubernetes Operator at increasingly larger scales and for a wide variety of use cases. Today, we’re excited to make the 1.0 release of the Pulumi Kubernetes Operator available.
The Pulumi Kubernetes Operator defines a Kubernetes Custom Resource called
pulumi.com/v1/Stack, which represents a Pulumi stack. The Pulumi stack can be authored in any supported Pulumi language (TypeScript, Python, Go, .NET) and can deploy and manage cloud infrastructure in any supported cloud (AWS, Azure, GCP, Kubernetes and 60+ additional cloud and SaaS providers). The Pulumi Kubernetes Operator triggers cloud deployments based on changes to the
Stack Custom Resource or the resources it tracks.
As a result, the Pulumi Kubernetes Operator enables users to specify the desired state of their cloud infrastructure using resources managed directly in their Kubernetes cluster, which trigger creation, update and deletion of the detailed cloud infrastructure they need.
