Pulumi, a Seattle-based cloud management software company, officially announced the release of version 1.0 of its platform.
Founded by former Microsoft EVP Eric Rudder, Pulumi’s latest release comes nearly a year after the company raised $15M in funding in their Series A round led by Madrona Venture Group in late 2018. According to Pulumi, “the 1.0 milestone signals completeness, stability, and compatibility, and is the result of two years of work helping 1,000s of customers take modern cloud architectures across many clouds into production.”
Developers often use YAML, or its many permutations, but the language has faced criticism over the last few years for its use of significant whitespace, confusing features, and ambiguous specification. Pulumi, however, offers a developer-friendly alternative that is directly integrated into existing workflows. As definitions for cloud infrastructure move closer to application source code and developers face growing responsibility for their maintenance, tools to manage cloud deployments are becoming more developer centric.
