Today we announced Pulumi Crosswalk for Kubernetes, a collection of open source tools, libraries, and playbooks to help developers and operators work together to bring Kubernetes into their organizations. They capture the lessons we learned this past year working with organizations to go from zero to Kubernetes in production for their infrastructure and application workloads. By releasing these as open source, we hope to help everybody be more successful with their Kubernetes projects — as we have learned through experience, it isn’t easy going!
Today we are excited to announce the Preview of .NET Core support for all of your modern infrastructure as code needs. This means you can create, deploy, and manage your infrastructure, on any cloud, using your favorite .NET language, including C#, F#, and VB.NET.
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 familiar, general-purpose languages, with a SaaS management console for configuring identities, organizations, and related policies. By using familiar 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.
Enterprise software has undergone a slow shift from containerless servers to serverless containers. The evolution of the cloud, combined with the shift to increasingly ephemeral infrastructure, and the connection of application code and infrastructure code, demands a different view of cloud development and devops. To a first approximation, all developers are cloud developers, all applications are cloud native, and all operations are cloud-first. Yet, there is a lack of a consistent approach to delivering cloud native applications and infrastructure.
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.
