Getting Started with Amazon EKS Distro & Pulumi

Getting Started with Amazon EKS Distro & Pulumi

As Kubernetes grows in popularity, the number of options for Kubernetes users continues to increase. Providers of managed Kubernetes offerings will often learn lessons about operating large numbers of clusters at scale; it’s increasingly common that they will contribute this knowledge back to the ecosystem, allowing those organizations who need more control and flexibility to reap the benefits.

With the announcement of the Amazon EKS Distro during AWS re:Invent, the Amazon EKS team has contributed back to the cloud-native community in a big way. In this post, we’ll take a brief look at what the Amazon EKS Distro is, explore why you might choose this over current managed service offerings and finally, explore how you can get started with the Amazon EKS Distro on day 1 using Pulumi.

Avoiding Kubernetes Anti-Patterns

Avoiding Kubernetes Anti-Patterns

In software development, an anti-pattern is defined as an apparent solution that has unintended or negative consequences. The other side of anti-patterns is that they also offer solutions. Let’s look at container and Kubernetes anti-patterns and how to avoid them with infrastructure as code.

How Pinpoint Manages Kubernetes Costs and Deployments

How Pinpoint Manages Kubernetes Costs and Deployments

This guest blog was contributed by Andrew Kunzel and Michael Goode. Andrew is the Director of Backend Engineering and Michael is a Platform Operations Engineer at Pinpoint.

At Pinpoint, Kubernetes is the most powerful tool in our arsenal. It allows us to deploy and rapidly scale our applications with speed and efficiency that continues to delight our customers. In recent years, managed services like AWS EKS have made it easier than ever to leverage the power of Kubernetes in even the smallest of organizations. Yet even with these new conveniences, managing all of this infrastructure can be a daunting task. Right out of the gate, we knew that we wanted to avoid the burden of maintaining repositories full of home-brewed deployment scripts and domain-specific languages like YAML.

Introducing the Pulumi Kubernetes Operator

Introducing the Pulumi Kubernetes Operator

Kubernetes developers and operators work together to manage workloads and to continuously ship software through CI/CD. These users have an affinity for automation and pipelines, and richer integration with Kubernetes is a growing theme across the cloud native ecosystem.

We’re excited to introduce the Pulumi Kubernetes Operator: a Kubernetes controller that deploys cloud infrastructure in Pulumi Stacks for you and your team.

These program stacks include virtual machines, block storage, managed Kubernetes clusters, API resources, serverless functions and more!

Introducing kube2pulumi: No More YAML

Introducing kube2pulumi: No More YAML

Kubernetes users often joke about being “YAML engineers,” and the pile of YAML seems to get deeper every day. Today, we’re pleased to announce kube2pulumi, a tool to automatically convert Kubernetes manifests into modern code! Instead of manipulating YAML directly, you can take advantage of the rich ecosystem of programming language tools to supercharge your productivity.

Getting Started With Kubernetes: Day 2

Getting Started With Kubernetes: Day 2

Your application made it out of the dev stage, passed the testing stage, and arrived in production. As a developer, you might think that it’s an ops problem now. However, DevOps is a collaborative effort between developers and operators to build and maintain applications using shared techniques and processes, often called “Day 2” activities.
