Jellyfish announced the launch of Jellyfish Benchmarks, a way to add context around engineering metrics and performance by introducing a method for comparison.
Pulumi released a public Registry that enables developers and infrastructure teams to apply “share and reuse” software principles to the modern cloud.
Through this developer-first approach, Pulumi now brings the full benefits of a software supply chain (e.g., dependency management, versioning, auditing, etc.) to cloud software. The Registry gives teams the ability to discover and share Pulumi Packages, providing everything needed to build, deploy, and manage applications and infrastructure with industry-standard languages. This living collection of cloud and SaaS integrations and cloud architecture implementations, with best practices built-in, make cloud infrastructure as easy to consume as software packages from popular repositories like npm.
With Pulumi Registry, infrastructure teams can use cloud and SaaS integrations to build components representing cloud architectures. These components can be reused or modified by application developers to increase their development speed. For example, infrastructure teams can make it easier for developers to deploy Kubernetes on AWS by building a component that configures availability zones, security groups, access roles, and auto-scaling, with the right number of resources to fit the needs of the application.
The Pulumi Registry is a growing collection of Pulumi-built and community-contributed packages. At launch, the Registry contains:
- Pulumi Native Provider Packages with the most complete resource coverage of AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, and Kubernetes, including same-day support for new cloud features and services. Native Providers were developed in partnership with each cloud provider.
- 60+ Pulumi Provider Packages for deploying resources with cloud and SaaS providers including providers for Auth0, CloudFlare, Confluent Cloud, Datadog, DigitalOcean, Docker, GitHub, Kong, MinIO, MongoDB Atlas, PagerDuty, Snowflake, Spot by NetApp, and many more.
- Pulumi Component Packages for deploying production-ready applications using architectures such as containers or Kubernetes (e.g., Amazon EKS, Azure Container Registry, Google Cloud Run), serverless (e.g., Amazon API Gateway and AWS Lambda), databases (e.g., AWS Redshift and Aurora), and networking (e.g. Amazon VPC).
- Pulumi Component Packages for cloud native integrations powered by Pulumi’s integration with Helm, including NGINX Ingress Controller and cert-manager, making it easy to provision essential Kubernetes services across the CNCF ecosystem.
“Cloud Engineering is a developer-first approach to building reusable infrastructure components and sharing them, both within your organization and with the broader community,” said Joe Duffy, CEO of Pulumi. “By providing a place where teams can share and discover reusable infrastructure building blocks and entire cloud architectures with best practices built-in, the Pulumi Registry helps ensure that the simple things are simple and the really hard things are made possible.”
