Pulumi & Kubernetes guides
Pulumi Crosswalk for Kubernetes is production-ready Kubernetes for teams. Work together to deliver Kubernetes to any cloud, AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, or private.
If you are just getting started with Pulumi and Kubernetes, the Get Started guide is a better place to start.
Playbooks for Kubernetes
Discover solutions to the hardest Kubernetes problems to avoid mitigating pitfalls around infrastructure, security, governance, reliablity, and maintainability of the cluster, it’s workloads, and underlying resources.
Get started with the playbooks to manage Kubernetes in production with your team.
Making Kubernetes Accessible to Everyone
Pulumi exposes 100% of the Kubernetes API in
which means you use modern programming practices to reduce YAML/JSON complexity,
repetition, and encapsulate workloads effectively.
Through the new Crosswalk library extensions, the authorship experience has improved to make the API more accessible and approachable to operators and developers.
By reducing the Kubernetes API syntax used, including sane defaults where possible, and maintaining idiomatic Kubernetes, it is easier to work with the API and deploy resources. Crosswalk revamps the Kubernetes API resource composition, but produces the exact semantic API output type. The ability to drop into and inject a given API type’s raw spec is maintained through out.
Get started with
pulumi/kubernetesx to manage Kubernetes
workloads using constructs built for everyone.
Query for Kubernetes
Maintaining and understanding Kubernetes clusters requires coordination and delivery of continuous changes. The API surface area is complex and highly disjointed when you want to make sense of what is taking place in the cluster, and why it is occuring.
Common choices for these assessments include a mix of
client-go, and require the user to form manual joins
across resources, and perform a reactive series of queries to understand what is taking place.
To gain detailed insights, we’ve released a new tool called Pulumi Query that helps you understand your clusters passively or in real-time. By exposing Kubernetes through a library of streaming queries, it becomes easy to write apps that can tail API resources, discover distinct versions of a given Pod, or even inform you of which Services are publicly exposed to the Internet.
Get started with
pulumi/query to understand Kubernetes
clusters and workloads through a new lens.
Pulumi Kubernetes Operator
The Pulumi Kubernetes Operator is an extension pattern that
enables Kubernetes users to create a
Stack as a first-class API
resource, and use the
StackController to drive the updates of the Stack until
Deploying Pulumi Stacks in Kubernetes provides the capability to build out CI/CD and automation systems into your clusters, creating native support to manage your infrastructure alongside your Kubernetes workloads.
Join the Community
With Pulumi’s unique approach to open source infrastructure as code, you’ll focus more on code and business logic, and less on resource templates, YAML or DSL configuration languages.
