CRN’s list of 10 coolest open-source tools in 2021 so far include python-based restore tooling from Aiven and cloud-use cost visibility from Stackwatch.
Pulumi offers an infrastructure-as-code platform for building, deploying and managing cloud infrastructure and applications. Developers can choose from more than 50 cloud providers, including public, private and hybrid architectures. Users include Snowflake, Tableau and AngelList, according to the company’s website.
In April, the team behind Pulumi released version 3.0, which includes Automation API, general availability of native providers for Microsoft Azure and improved Go and Python software development kits (SDKs).
Seattle-based Pulumi Corp. was co-founded in 2017 by CEO Joe Duffy, who spent more than 12 years with Microsoft.
Eric Thiel, director of developer experience at Cisco DevNet, said that Pulumi has come up more and more in discussions. “It will be a focus area in 2021 to explore how best to leverage its capabilities,” he told CRN.
