Using Pulumi and general purpose languages for infrastructure as code comes with many benefits: leveraging existing skills and knowledge, eliminating boilerplate through abstraction, and using the same ecosystem of tools like IDEs and linters that your team already knows and loves. In general, these are all attributes of software engineering, which not only make us more productive, but also improve the quality of our code. It’s only natural, therefore, that using general purpose languages unlocks another important software engineering practice: testing.
The Kubernetes landscape is constantly evolving as end users and developers search for the right tools, approaches, and abstractions to help them manage Cloud Native infrastructure in production. Last Friday, we were honored to have Joe Beda show where Pulumi fits in on his TGIK livestream, highlighting how to use your favorite language and consistent workflows to create, deploy, and manage cloud resources across multiple clouds and Kubernetes.
The Pulumi ecosystem is continuously growing and today we’re excited to announce the F5 BIG-IP provider for Pulumi.
Pulumi is hosting a webinar with AWS Fargate on February 5th, 10AM PST (register here). We’ll be chatting about how to implement cloud native infrastructure across your organization using AWS and Pulumi: general purpose programming languages to deliver everything from VMs to Kubernetes to Serverless.
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.
