Pulumi's Cloud Native SDK Lets Teams Easily Define and Deliver Cloud Native Infrastructure as Code for Kubernetes in Any Cloud

Grazed from Pulumi

Pulumi Corporation today announced the availability of its Cloud Native SDK for Kubernetes enabling a code-based approach to creating, deploying and managing applications across clouds including Microsoft AKS, Amazon EKS, and Google GKE, in addition to on-premises and hybrid environments. Pulumi also announced it has joined the Cloud Native Computing Foundation to accelerate development and delivery of its cloud native programming tools and framework.

The Pulumi SDK provides full access to Kubernetes APIs and enables execution of all Kubernetes operations through ‘configuration as code,' the use of real programming languages for configuration of cloud native resources. This provides clear productivity benefits by enabling code reuse and abstraction, in addition to easing previously difficult operations such as complex multi-stage cloud application deployments, or combining Kubernetes deployments with other cloud resources such as datastores. Pulumi also supports existing Helm and YAML-based configuration of Kubernetes.

Pulumi stacks can be coded using a variety of common languages including JavaScript, TypeScript, Python and Go and work consistently across all Kubernetes, serverless, data and infrastructure services from cloud platforms, eliminating the need for developers and DevOps teams to support multiple DSLs and configuration dialects.

The Cloud Native Computing Foundation Announces 30 New Members

Grazed from The Cloud Native Computing Foundation

Open Source Summit - The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), which sustains and integrates open source technologies like Kubernetes and Prometheus, today announced that 30 new members joined the Foundation.

451 Research forecasts the global DevOps & microservices market is predicted to reach $10 billion by 2021, positioning cloud native technologies for rapid adoption.

"CNCF is thrilled to welcome our many new members from around the world in diverse industries, including financial leaders like Bloomberg and Morgan Stanley," said Dan Kohn, Executive Director of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. "CNCF has now crossed over the 100 member mark in less than two years since we started, including the six largest public cloud providers. As our membership base diversifies, the ecosystem benefits from broader input, contributions and financial support to fuel more rapid adoption of cloud native computing."

Microsoft joins Cloud Native Computing Foundation

I’m excited to share that we have just joined the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) as a Platinum member. CNCF is a part of the Linux Foundation, which helps govern for a wide range of cloud-oriented open source projects, such as Kubernetes, Prometheus, OpenTracing, Fluentd, Linkerd, containerd, Helm, gRPC, and many others. Since we joined the Linux Foundation last year, and now have decided to expand that relationship to CNCF membership as a natural next step to invest in open source communities and code at multiple levels, especially in the area of containers. Some specific examples include:

* Kubernetes: Microsoft has been contributing code to the Kubernetes project, as well as running Kubernetes as part of the Azure Container Service. Engineering manager and architect Brendan Burns is one of the Kubernetes project maintainers.

* Helm: The Helm project was started by Deis before being acquired by Microsoft and continues to be developed and improved by Microsoft engineers. Adam Reese, Michelle Noorali, and Matt Butcher are all project maintainers...

Cloud Native Computing Foundation Grows Open Source Cloud Container Community As Calls Are Made To Kill Industry Confusion

Grazed from Data-Economy. Author: Joao Marques Lima.

The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) has unveiled a wave of new partners and members in one of its largest announcements of the year. The CNCF brings together a community of 1,500 developers and users from a large multitude of companies including Google, Fujitsu, Samsung SDS, Intel, RedHat and Huawei that work on open source technologies to orchestrate containers as part of a microservices architecture.

However, despite the advancements by the organisation and its partners, the industry recognises that there is a lot of confusion around the understanding of technologies and terminologies such as containers and new infrastructure architectures. As the CNCF explains, containers, software-based infrastructure, and microservices represent a major evolution in the way applications are deployed and managed...
