Deploy the Stack

Let’s go ahead and deploy the stack:

$ pulumi up

This command instructs Pulumi to determine the resources needed to create the stack. First, a preview is shown of the changes that will be made:

Previewing update (dev):

     Type                           Name            Plan
 +   pulumi:pulumi:Stack            quickstart-dev  create
 +   └─ kubernetes:apps:Deployment  nginx           create

    + 2 to create

Do you want to perform this update?
> no

Choosing yes will create resources in Kubernetes.

Do you want to perform this update? yes
Updating (dev):

     Type                           Name            Status
 +   pulumi:pulumi:Stack            quickstart-dev  created
 +   └─ kubernetes:apps:Deployment  nginx           created

    name: "nginx-xw231xdt"

    + 2 created

Duration: 11s

The name of the deployment that we exported is shown as a stack output.

If you are using the Pulumi Service backend, you can follow the "View Live" link displayed in the CLI output. This will open the update in the Pulumi Console, where you can view the output and explore detailed information about your stack such as its activity, resources, and configuration.

Next, we’ll make some modifications to the program.
