Cloud engineering company Pulumi has announced new capabilities for Kubernetes, including cloud native deployment automation options, ecosystem integrations and migration tools.

The new capabilities include an in-cluster operator, admission control using policy-as-code and Open Policy Agent (OPA) support, Helm 3 and Kustomize orchestration, a Spinnaker plugin and new ways to convert YAML to modern infrastructure-as-code in general-purpose languages such as Python, Go, Node.js (TypeScript and JavaScript) and .NET (C# and F#).

The new Pulumi Kubernetes Operator enables deployments from within a cluster using Git-based workflows, in addition to enforcing any cloud policy using admission control. Pulumi’s new Spinnaker Plugin is said to add to more than a dozen other integration CI/CD options, including GitHub Actions, GitLab, Codefresh and Octopus, meeting teams where they already are.

Also, Pulumi’s Kubernetes YAML Converter is said to enable users to translate markup into any of the supported languages, making it easier than ever to modernize infrastructure.

The new capabilities build on Pulumi Crosswalk for Kubernetes, announced in November 2019, which helps teams deliver production-ready Kubernetes clusters, infrastructure and workloads.

Pulumi also today announced that Snowflake, Mercedes-Benz and Lemonade are among hundreds of organizations that have embraced Pulumi’s Kubernetes superpowers to accelerate cloud innovation, eliminating silos among infrastructure teams and developers and getting applications to production faster.

According to the company, the Pulumi SaaS platform expands on this to enable cloud engineering practices and collaboration across the whole organization, with multiple editions for teams of all sizes.

The Enterprise Edition adds advanced security, hosting and support options, all of which have been enhanced to supercharge cloud native projects, the company added.
