Today we are excited to announce the general availability of Pulumi 1.0. Pulumi is a modern infrastructure as code tool that lets you declare infrastructure using real languages, with a SaaS management console for configuring identities, organizations, and related policies. By using real languages, developers and operators are able to work better together, sharing and reusing best practices, accomplishing new levels of automation, and unlocking access to ecosystems of existing tools.
One year ago today – on June 18, 2018 – we open sourced Pulumi, a new approach to multi-cloud infrastructure as code using your favorite languages. And what a year it has been!
Amazon Web Services provides an incredible platform for developers to build cloud-native applications, and is used by millions of customers of all sizes. The building block services that AWS offers enable teams to offload undifferentiated heavy-lifting to AWS. To maximally benefit from these services though, cloud engineering teams must learn how to compose all of these building blocks together to build and deliver their own applications. Today, this is still too hard. Getting from your laptop to a production-ready AWS deployment frequently takes days or weeks instead of minutes or hours. And AWS building block services frequently leave you to re-implement (and re-discover) best-practices instead of providing these as smart defaults.
Pulumi Crosswalk for AWS is a new open source library of infrastructure-as-code components that make it easier to get from zero to production on AWS, easier to adopt AWS best practices by default, and easier to evolve your AWS infrastructure as your application needs mature.
We have been hard at work the past few months providing our users with more ways to connect to Pulumi. Here are some our past announcements related to identities: Support for Atlassian identity Connecting multiple identities to an existing Pulumi account Support for GitLab identity Today, we are pleased to announce that we are launching support for email-based identities. You no longer need to use a social identity to sign-up for an account on Pulumi.
As we close out 2018, and enter into a New Year, I was reflecting on our progress here at Pulumi this past year and wanted to share some thoughts. It’s been an incredible year and we are hugely thankful to our passionate community, customers, and partners.
Heading to AWS re:Invent? Concerned about how you’ll manage to get that much YAML into your carry on bag? Or maybe you just like purple.
Whatever the reason, the Pulumi team will be there all week at Booth 316, Startup Central, Aria Quad, and we’d love to chat with you about AWS and Pulumi.
Catch up with us on serverless functions, containers and Kubernetes, managed services and any other cloud native infrastructure as code, and see how you can more productively manage your AWS cloud resources with general purpose programming languages. We can even help you migrate your CloudFormation to Pulumi.
If you want to grab a specific time to talk through your needs, then use this link, otherwise we’ll just see you at the booth!
We founded Pulumi because of a deeply held belief that the cloud promises to change all aspects of software development and that there remains an incredible opportunity to reimagine the entire experience, from idea to creation to delivery to management, with one person in mind: you, the engineer.
Today we announced our partnership with GitHub on the new GitHub Actions feature. We are super excited about this bold and innovative technology, especially as it relates to Pulumi, and CI/CD more broadly. We truly believe that Pulumi plus GitHub Actions delivers the easiest, most capable, and friction-free way to achieve continuous delivery of cloud applications and infrastructure, no matter your cloud – AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, Kubernetes, or even on-premises. In this post, we’ll dig deeper to see why, and how to get up and running. It’s refreshingly easy!
Ahoy! Today we launched Pulumi, an open source cloud development platform, providing the cloud’s first true programming model using real programming languages. We believe that containers, serverless, and hosted cloud services change everything about how we design and build software. All developers these days are cloud developers. We saw a big gap in the way people want to create this software, and how they are required to do it today with configuration YAML and templating languages, and sought to close that gap.
