Terraform enables you to safely and predictably create, change, and improve infrastructure. It is a source-available tool that codifies APIs into declarative configuration files that can be shared amongst team members, treated as code, edited, reviewed, and versioned.

Pulumi's Infrastructure as Code SDK is the easiest way to build and deploy infrastructure, of any architecture and on any cloud, using programming languages that you already know and love. Code and ship infrastructure faster with your favorite languages and tools, and embed IaC anywhere with Automation API.

Simply write code in your favorite language and Pulumi automatically provisions and manages your resources on AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Kubernetes, and 120+ providers using an infrastructure-as-code approach. Skip the YAML, and use standard language features like loops, functions, classes, and package management that you already know and love.

For example, create three web servers:

const aws = require("@pulumi/aws");
const sg = new aws.ec2.SecurityGroup("web-sg", {
    ingress: [{ protocol: "tcp", fromPort: 80, toPort: 80, cidrBlocks: [""] }],
for (let i = 0; i < 3; i++) {
    new aws.ec2.Instance(`web-${i}`, {
        ami: "ami-7172b611",
        instanceType: "t2.micro",
        vpcSecurityGroupIds: [sg.id],
        userData: `#!/bin/bash
            echo "Hello, World!" > index.html
            nohup python -m SimpleHTTPServer 80 &`,

Or a simple serverless timer that archives Hacker News every day at 8:30AM:

const aws = require("@pulumi/aws");

const snapshots = new aws.dynamodb.Table("snapshots", {
    attributes: [{ name: "id", type: "S", }],
    hashKey: "id", billingMode: "PAY_PER_REQUEST",

aws.cloudwatch.onSchedule("daily-yc-snapshot", "cron(30 8 * * ? *)", () => {
    require("https").get("https://news.ycombinator.com", res => {
        let content = "";
        res.on("data", chunk => content += chunk);
        res.on("end", () => new aws.sdk.DynamoDB.DocumentClient().put({
            TableName: snapshots.name.get(),
            Item: { date: Date.now(), content },

Many examples are available spanning containers, serverless, and infrastructure in pulumi/examples.

Pulumi is open source under the Apache 2.0 license, supports many languages and clouds, and is easy to extend. This repo contains the pulumi CLI, language SDKs, and core Pulumi engine, and individual libraries are in their own repos.

Getting Started

Watch the video

See the Get Started guide to quickly get started with Pulumi on your platform and cloud of choice.

Otherwise, the following steps demonstrate how to deploy your first Pulumi program, using AWS Serverless Lambdas, in minutes:

  1. Install:

    To install the latest Pulumi release, run the following (see full installation instructions for additional installation options):

    $ curl -fsSL https://get.pulumi.com/ | sh
  2. Create a Project:

    After installing, you can get started with the pulumi new command:

    $ mkdir pulumi-demo && cd pulumi-demo
    $ pulumi new hello-aws-javascript

    The new command offers templates for all languages and clouds. Run it without an argument and it'll prompt you with available projects. This command created an AWS Serverless Lambda project written in JavaScript.

  3. Deploy to the Cloud:

    Run pulumi up to get your code to the cloud:

    $ pulumi up

    This makes all cloud resources needed to run your code. Simply make edits to your project, and subsequent pulumi ups will compute the minimal diff to deploy your changes.

  4. Use Your Program:

    Now that your code is deployed, you can interact with it. In the above example, we can curl the endpoint:

    $ curl $(pulumi stack output url)
  5. Access the Logs:

    If you're using containers or functions, Pulumi's unified logging command will show all of your logs:

    $ pulumi logs -f
  6. Destroy your Resources:

    After you're done, you can remove all resources created by your program:

    $ pulumi destroy -y
