Pulumi Crosswalk for Kubernetes Released
December 05, 2019

Pulumi announced the availability of Pulumi Crosswalk for Kubernetes, an open source collection of frameworks, tools and user guides that help developers and operators work better together delivering production workloads using Kubernetes.

It supports managing Kubernetes infrastructure across public clouds including AWS Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS), Microsoft Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) and Google Cloud Platform Kubernetes Engine (GKE), in addition to application delivery to those environments using built-in best practices.

Pulumi is a modern infrastructure as code platform that lets developers author infrastructure and application configuration, using general-purpose programming languages. This approach unlocks access to ecosystems of tools such as IDEs, test frameworks and package managers, helping teams to share and reuse patterns and practices. Pulumi Crosswalk for Kubernetes extends Pulumi’s core infrastructure as code capabilities by providing support for production Kubernetes architectures.

Pulumi Crosswalk for Kubernetes lets teams:

- Deploy to any Kubernetes environment. Provision infrastructure for any platform -- public, private, or hybrid -- across many clouds and deploy Kubernetes application consistently.

- Use 100% of Kubernetes. Use the entire Kubernetes API across all versions, objects, CRDs and Helm charts, with new feature support on the same day that Kubernetes releases new versions.

- Provision infrastructure as code in familiar languages. Author infrastructure and application configuration in TypeScript, JavaScript, or Python, using infrastructure as code techniques. Manage cloud infrastructure alongside Kubernetes resources using one workflow.

- Reduce application configuration boilerplate. Leverage the new library, Kx, to streamline authoring and help developers and infrastructure engineers innovate faster together.

- Integrate CI/CD. Deploy continuously using one of a dozen integrations, including GitLab, Jenkins, CodeFresh, Octopus, Azure DevOps Pipelines, GitHub Actions and more.

- Answer operational queries. Gain key insights using a collection of new operations tools, Kq, that extend the core Pulumi engine to query live Kubernetes resources in realtime.

- Leverage built-in best practices. Utilize user guides that capture industry best practices based on tried-and-true experience with dozens of real customers going to production with Kubernetes.

Pulumi Crosswalk for Kubernetes is open source and available on GitHub. Pulumi also offers premium editions for enterprises wanting advanced policies and controls, including integrating deployments with identity providers such as Azure ActiveDirectory, Okta and GitLab. It allows users to enforce security and compliance requirements, self-host on-premises or in their own cloud accounts and implement advanced automation with webhooks, among other features. Pulumi also offers support and training.

“Our customers tell us that the hardest thing about Kubernetes is getting from the initial decision to use it, to having production- and team-ready infrastructure,” said Joe Duffy, Pulumi co-founder and CEO. “We’ve learned a lot by helping dozens of customers get up and running over the past year and have taken an approach of empowering developers and operators to work better together. Pulumi Crosswalk for Kubernetes captures those learnings in a reusable and open source form that benefits the entire Kubernetes community. We look forward to seeing where customers and end users take us from here.”
