Toolset to deploy and maintain infrastructure in automated and trackable manner.
First class support for:
The preferred way of running CloudBender is using the public container. This ensure all tools and dependencies are in sync and underwent some basic testing during the development and build phase.
As a fall back CloudBender and its dependencies can be installed locally see step 1b below.
The command below tests the ability to run containers within containers on your local setup.
( This most likely only works on a recent Linux box/VM, which is capable of running rootless containers within containers. Requires kernel >= 5.12, Cgroups V2, podman, ... )
podman run --rm -v .:/workspace -v $HOME/.aws/config:/workspace/.aws/config public.ecr.aws/zero-downtime/cloudbender:latest podman run -q --rm docker.io/busybox:latest echo "Rootless container inception works!"
if you get
Rootless container inception works!, add an alias to your environment, eg:
alias cloudbender="podman run --rm -v .:/workspace -v $HOME/.aws/config:/home/cloudbender/.aws/config public.ecr.aws/zero-downtime/cloudbender:latest cloudbender"
and proceed with step 2)
1b. Local install
pip3 install -U cloudbender
curl -fsSL https://get.pulumi.com | sh(official Docs)
dockerdepending on your platform
2. Test cli
To verify that all pieces are in place run:
which should get you something like:

The state for all Pulumi resources are stored on S3 in your account and in the same region as the resources being deployed. No data is send to nor shared with the official Pulumi provided APIs.
CloudBender configures Pulumi with a local, temporary workspace on the fly. This incl. the injection of various common parameters like the AWS account ID and region etc.
All state is handled by AWS Cloudformation.
The required account and region are determined by CloudBender automatically from the configuration.
- Within the config folder each directory represents either a stack group if it has sub-directories, or an actual Cloudformation stack in case it is a leaf folder.
- The actual configuration for each stack is hierachly merged. Lower level config files overwrite higher-level values. Complex data structures like dictionaries and arrays are deep merged.
CloudBender supports the native Pulumi secret handling. See Pulumi Docs for details.
CloudBender supports SOPS to encrypt values in any config file.
If a sops encrypted config file is detected by CloudBender, it will automatically try to decrypt the file. All required information to decrypt has to be present in the embedded sops config or set ahead of time via sops supported ENVIRONMENT variables.
SOPS support can be disabled by setting
DISABLE_SOPS in order to reduce timeouts etc.
