phoenixNAP and Pulumi Collaborate to Simplify Bare Metal Cloud Management

Press Release from Phoenix NAP

PHOENIX, Oct. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- phoenixNAP®, a global IT services provider offering security-focused cloud infrastructure, dedicated servers, colocation, and specialized Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) technology solutions, today announced that its Bare Metal Cloud is now fully integrated with Pulumi — the leading open-source infrastructure as code (IaC) platform. This integration simplifies the process of provisioning and managing Bare Metal Cloud resources at scale, allowing developers to focus more on building apps instead of spending time on managing infrastructure.

Bare Metal Cloud is a cloud-native ready IaaS platform built for organizations that heavily rely on IT automation. As a non-virtualized, single-tenant infrastructure, it delivers the raw power of physical servers on the hourly billing and reserved instances models. Bare Metal Cloud empowers DevOps teams to quickly provision and scale infrastructure resources to accelerate their CI/CD pipelines, go to market faster, and improve their overall IT efficiency. Integrated with major IaC platforms, Bare Metal Cloud is easy to use for a wide variety of projects and teams.

What sets Pulumi apart from other infrastructure as code tools is its support for the world's most popular programming languages. Pulumi's unique approach to infrastructure as code eliminates the complexity that comes with automating infrastructure with domain-specific languages or templates. Using Pulumi, Cloud Engineering teams can define cloud resources in their favorite languages such as Python, Go, .NET, TypeScript, or JavaScript and programmatically deploy, scale, and decommission dynamic Bare Metal Cloud environments.

"We are excited to work with the Pulumi team and provide this valuable option within our Bare Metal Cloud," said Ian McClarty, President of phoenixNAP. "From the very start, we were developing Bare Metal Cloud based on users' feedback, and we made sure we integrate it with Pulumi as it's one of the favorite infrastructure management options among DevOps professionals."

Pulumi aims to fundamentally improve the way Cloud Engineering teams collaborate and interact with cloud-native infrastructure. Whether that infrastructure is Bare Metal Cloud instances, virtual machines, containers, or serverless functions, it facilitates repeatability and consistency in DevOps environments. As a cloud-neutral platform, Pulumi also comes with a plethora of powerful tools that make it easy to define and automate infrastructure deployments on any cloud.

"It is great to see innovative IaaS providers like phoenixNAP adopting Pulumi to simplify infrastructure deployments and management for their users," explained Isaac Harris, Head of Business Development at Pulumi. "We believe phoenixNAP's Bare Metal Cloud is exactly what Cloud Engineers need as they strive to improve performance and modernize their infrastructure stacks, and we are excited Pulumi is a part of it. As a modern cloud engineering platform, Pulumi helps operators and application developers speak the same language – enabling the whole team to ship faster to all clouds."

phoenixNAP's Bare Metal Cloud is a dedicated platform that relies on automation to enable seamless infrastructure deployment. With flexible billing models, near-instant setup, API, CLI, and various DevOps integrations, Bare Metal Cloud addresses key challenges in organizations looking to adopt agile principles and DevOps methodologies. Pulumi is a great solution for teams that are looking to improve collaboration, minimize infrastructure management bottlenecks, and speed up their CI/CD pipelines.
