Trial ? Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk.

We've been seeing an increase in teams using Pulumi in various organizations. Pulumi fills a gaping hole in the infrastructure coding world where Terraform maintains a firm hold. While Terraform is a tried-and-true standby, its declarative nature suffers from inadequate abstraction facilities and limited testability. Terraform is adequate when the infrastructure is entirely static, but dynamic infrastructure definitions call for a real programming language. Pulumi distinguishes itself by allowing configurations to be written in TypeScript/JavaScript, Python and Go — no markup language or templating required. Pulumi is tightly focused on cloud-native architectures — including containers, serverless functions and data services — and provides good support for Kubernetes. Recently, AWS CDK has mounted a challenge, but Pulumi remains the only cloud-neutral tool in this area.

We're anticipating wider Pulumi adoption in the future and looking forward to a viable tool and knowledge ecosystem emerging to support it.

We're quite interested in Pulumi, a promising entrant in cloud infrastructure automation. Pulumi distinguishes itself by allowing configurations to be written in TypeScript/JavaScript, Python, and Go—no YAML required. Pulumi is tightly focused on cloud-native architectures—including containers, serverless functions and data services—and provides good support for Kubernetes.
