Pulumi AWS Infrastructure Components

Pulumi's framework for Amazon Web Services (AWS) infrastructure.

To use this package, install the Pulumi CLI. For a streamlined Pulumi walkthrough, including language runtime installation and AWS configuration, see the Crosswalk for AWS documentation.

The AWS Infrastructure package is intended to provide component wrappers around many core AWS 'raw' resources to make them easier and more convenient to use. In general, the @pulumi/awsx package mirrors the module structure of @pulumi/aws (i.e. @pulumi/awsx/ecs or @pulumi/awsx/ec2). These components are designed to take care of much of the redundancy and boilerplate necessary when using the raw AWS resources, while still striving to expose all underlying functionality if needed.

The AWS Infrastructure package undergoes constant improvements and additions. While we will strive to maintain backward compatability here, we will occasionally make breaks here as appropriate if it helps improve the overall quality of this package.

The AWS Infrastructure package exposes many high level abstractions. Including:

  • ec2. A module that makes it easier to work with your AWS network, subnets, and security groups. By default, the resources in the package follow the AWS Best Practices, but can be configured as desired in whatever ways you want. Most commonly, this package is used to acquire the default Vpc for a region (using awsx.ec2.DefaultNetwork). However, it can also be used to easily create or augment an existing Vpc.

  • ecs. A module that makes it easy to create and configure clusters, tasks and services for running containers. Convenience resources are created to make the common tasks of creating EC2 or Fargate services and tasks much simpler.

  • lb. A module for simply setting up Elastic Load Balancing. This module provides convenient ways to set up either Network or Application load balancers, along with the appropriate ELB Target Groups and Listeners in order to have a high availability, automatically-scaled service. These ELB components also work well with the other awsx components. For example, an lb.defaultTarget can be passed in directly as the portMapping target of an ecs.FargateService.

Migration from 0.x to 1.0

Before version 1, this package only supported components in TypeScript. All the existing components from the 0.x releases are now available in the classic namespace. The classic namespace will remain until the next major version release but will only receive updates for critical security fixes.

  1. Change references from @pulumi/awsx to @pulumi/awsx/classic to maintain existing behaviour.
  2. Refactor to replace the classic components with the new top-level components.

Note: The new top-level components (outside the classic namespace) may require additional code changes and resource re-creation.


This package is available in many languages in the standard packaging formats.

Node.js (Java/TypeScript)

To use from JavaScript or TypeScript in Node.js, install using either npm:

npm install @pulumi/awsx

or yarn:

yarn add @pulumi/awsx


To use from Python, install using pip:

pip install pulumi-awsx


To use from Go, use go get to grab the latest version of the library

go get


To use from .NET, install using dotnet add package:

dotnet add package Pulumi.Awsx


The configuration options available for this provider mirror those of the Pulumi AWS Classic Provider
