Can’t make it to Valencia for KubeCon this year? Timezone doesn’t work for the virtual conference either? We can’t fix time, but if you’re feeling left out and still want some of that sweet cloud native content, you can still join us for KubeCrash, a new event hosting live crash courses and sessions on cloud native tech. Come hang out and learn directly from the maintainers of cloud native open source projects!
As a reader of this blog, you’ve probably heard of the Pulumi Service, the default state-management backend of the Pulumi CLI, and if that’s the case, there’s a good chance you’ve also heard of many of its key features. But did you know we’re adding new features to the Service all the time—some of which are incredibly easy to miss? In this post, we’ll highlight a few of those lesser-known features that we think make it even easier to manage your infrastructure with Pulumi.
It’s the end of the 2021 calendar year here at Pulumi, and like everyone, we’re counting down until 2022 while looking back at our year. We’ve had a very exciting year! In case you missed anything from our past year, here’s a rundown of the top stories from Pulumi: January Pulumi became SOC2 certified in early January 2021. February We brought support for all four official Pulumi languages to EKS.
Today, I’m excited to announce the (re-)launch of the Pulumi public roadmap, now built on top of the new GitHub Issues. The roadmap is a core part of the commitment we’re making to our open source product, the Pulumi CLI and SDK, as well as the Pulumi Service. As we’ve talked to many of you that use Pulumi, or are considering using it, we’ve heard that the roadmap is a key tool to help understand what new and exciting work is coming to Pulumi.
Pulumi was designed to be highly extensible from the outset. That includes core languages and cloud providers, of course, but our community is often using Pulumi as a central part of building and connecting their cloud engineering and automation systems, using features like the Automation API. Today we are happy to announce the next major step in enabling these kind of scenarios: the Pulumi REST API. This REST API offers functionality to manage projects and stacks, cloud resources, policies, and more. It has, in fact, been there all along, powering the Pulumi SDK, CLI, and Console behind the scenes, although we haven’t fully documented or supported it until now. That changes today! We’ve already seen some amazing things built with this API and we’re excited to see what you build with it too.
Earth is just the beginning. We are putting down the foundations of space so our children can build their future. At Pulumi, we are committed to making life multi-planetary. We are excited to announce Pulumi Interstellar, a collection of resource providers that will help us reach the future of a space-faring and multi-planet species.
Today I’m thrilled to announce that we’ve raised $37.5 million in Series B funding led by NEA with participation from existing investors, Madrona Venture Group and Tola Capital. We will use this funding to continue serving our fast-growing community of developers and infrastructure practitioners, making Cloud Engineering the new reality for organizations embracing the modern cloud in all aspects of how they ship software.
Pulumi is honored to be named as one of only three vendors in the 2020 Gartner Cool Vendor for Agile and DevOps report, published on May 28th, 2020. Being recognized in this way is a strong validation of Pulumi’s impact thanks to our more modern approach to Infrastructure as Code and approaches to building cloud software. Vendors can only be selected once and in only one category making this an exclusive award.
Today we are excited to announce Pulumi 2.0, the next major stage in our journey as an open source project, company, and community. This release expands on our original vision of using your favorite languages and tools to do all things infrastructure as code, now with new cloud engineering superpowers that will help you and your team adopt modern cloud architectures.
Together, we’re facing an unprecedented situation with the COVID-19 pandemic. In this note, I’d like to tell you about the steps we’ve taken to ensure the health of our employees, community, and to ensure business continuity throughout.
