Does your deployed infrastructure match what you defined?

In “How SQL can unify access to APIs” I made the case for SQL as a common environment in which to reason about data flowing from many different APIs. The key enabler of that scenario is Steampipe, a Postgres-based tool with a growing suite of API plugins that map APIs to foreign tables in Postgres.

These APIs were, initially, the ones provided by AWS, Azure, and GCP. Such APIs are typically made more accessible to developers by way of wrappers like boto3. A common SQL interface is arguably a better unifier of the sprawling API ecosystems within these clouds, and that’s inarguably true in multicloud scenarios. With Postgres under the hood, by the way, you’re not restricted to SQL: You can hook Python or JavaScript or another language to Postgres and leverage the common SQL interface from those languages too.
